Asking these three questions can help you plan a VR lesson that will engage students and achieve your learning objectives.
Your lesson objective:

The Immerse application has a variety of tools and resources to help educators create engaging English language learning experiences.
This series of guides are designed to show how a rich understanding of the affordances of VR technology will inspire great lesson ideas that develop language knowledge, promote practice, and support fluency.
In these model lessons note how we incorporate multiple different aspects of VR to bring to life rich, engaging, experiences. Learning in VR is never limited to one activity or interaction, the world is yours to customize for language learning success.
