Immersive Realities

Welcome to the Immersive Realities SIG! We are interested in how technologies such Virtual Reality (VR), Virtual Worlds (VWs), Augmented Reality (AR), and more can enhance the language teaching and learning processes.

We put out a newsletter every couple months and occasionally meet virtually, either via videoconference or in other immersive platforms, to discuss topics in the field or just to socialize.

Here are some ways to connect with the SIG and be included:
