"I only know one thing about the technologies that await us in the future: we will find ways to tell stories with them." (Jason Ohler). Storytelling is a wonderful means of getting our language learners excited. Yet, how difficult is it to recreate scenes of Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter or King Arthur in OpenSim? What about character creation? This presentation outlines a 5-week workshop with more than 100 participants and the outstanding contributions by Dr. Doris Molero and Helena Galani.
- Participants will be able to learn more about fanfiction, media narratives and crossovers
