Immersive Learning in Preservice Teacher Education: Using Virtual Worlds
Published on July 6, 2012
HETL Note: We are pleased to present “Immersive Learning in Preservice Teacher Education: Using Virtual Worlds” – an academic article by CSU Chico’s Dr. Paula M. Selvester. The article describes how Second Life was used as part of an online course to support preservice teachers and provide a means to investigative their beliefs and attitudes about gender roles in society. The data showed that using Second Life in this way created a more transformative and interactive online course experience which led to new insights about gender roles in society.
