Image of the Week: Practicing English in a Virtual Reality Experience
When learning another language, especially one as complex as English, it helps to communicate with others. Creating a virtual ‘meetup’ where your students can ask and answer questions with other English speaking individuals creates an authentic opportunity to learn. Our image of the week comes to us all the way from Israel, specifically Gali’s Global Class.
Gali tagged a 360° photo with a variety of items like Google Forms, an embedded Doc, and Flipgrid (a video response tool). Her objective was to have her students start to use the present simple tense of verbs. Now anyone can respond to the questions:
- do you have a hobby?
- what do you do on your weekends?
- what games do you like to play?
Learning Standards to Support Student Created Virtual Reality
- ISTE Standards for Students 7A (Global Collaborator)
- Use digital tools to connect with learners from a variety of backgrounds and cultures, engaging with them in ways that broaden mutual understanding and learning.
- Use verbs to convey a sense of past, present, and future.
