Challenges of educational use of 3D virtual environments

The incorporation of simulation environments to the teaching-learning process redefines relationships and forms of interaction between teacher and students and also between students themselves. In this new article we present a reflection on the interaction in these environments, the reasons for its use with pedagogical purposes and the obstacles that educators might encounter making use of them. To preserve their educational potential, taking in account that 3D environments introduce a reality not comparable to everyday life, it is important to avoid transporting pre-existing educative models. Information and communication technologies, while expanding the potential of the classroom, require the design of a new pedagogical model that reconsiders every day thinking practices.

    Dear Prof,

    HAPPY NEW YEAR

    Hello. I hope you remember me. I asked for your help with regard to choosing a topic for my thesis. Your comment was of great help to me. I did a semiological content analysis on images in two award-winning software packs (gender positioning).

    Now, I am a Ph.D. candidate in Applied Linguistics in Iran. I am totally absorbed in social semiotics and related fields. And I try to learn something new everyday.

    I like to go abroad for further studies, by the way.

    Never will I forget your help. You are always in my prayers.

    Cheers,

    Zahra
