Barbara McQueen is based in the USA and has decades of experience mentoring fellow teachers one-on-one, through in-services, as an ESL teacher trainer for Oxford Seminars, and as a conference presenter for TESOL EVO, and VWBPE.   She is currently developing and delivering online ESL courses at SLESL.net that make use of situational role-playing, games, mysteries, and machinimas, and has won multiple machinima awards.  For examples of her work, go to her YouTube Channel.

According to Barbara McQueen, teachers are often unnerved by how much they need to learn to best use virtual worlds as a part of their technology arsenal. So they don’t use virtual worlds or only use them in a very limited way. Barbara’s presentation will detail:

  • The most important virtual world skills to learn and fun ways to teach them
  • Simple to complex games and roleplays that deeply immerse students
  • Tasks for blogs, Moodle, Skype, machinima, social media, online conference rooms, and other educational software and devices.
