Event Name:
A Multimodal VR Approach for Immersive Learning Using Storytelling

Immerse yourself in a multisensory and multimodal journey to one of Henrik Ibsen's famous plays, A Doll's House. We're going to visit two scenes in Frame VR and reflect on Nora's story as if it took place in the 21st Century. What happened after she slammed the door shut? Can we recreate the story from another perspective using VR? What will it look like? How can we help our students attain higher order thinking skills through multimodal storytelling? The webinar will start by showing attendees how to use FrameVR for teaching language learners, then we'll explore together two scenes from Ibsen's play.
