This update we have introduced some additional interactions that allow students to build and create new things during lessons. Students can now build a burger to order in the fast food scene, build their favorite ice cream cone in the Backyard BBQ, Central Park and the Zoo, or build and paint a chair in Garage!
These interactions allow you to plan lessons where students can clearly communicate instructions and preferences and can be used to do a variety of different types of language work.
Moving forward, we plan to continue adding unique and exciting new ways for students to build and create in Immerse, with the goal of supporting deeper internalization of language. Stay tuned!
Ice Cream Cone Crafting:
Chair Building and Painting:
To allow more user-friendly interaction with plates and trays, students and teachers can now stick items to these surfaces. This allows users to pass plates and trays full of food and drinks naturally without having to worry about items falling off. Bring your food-based lessons to life by having students create custom recipes to share with others!
We've adjusted the Student Manager to allow for 4 distinct audio channels in Immerse. When Team Chat is toggled "On," the Blue team (Default Audio Channel) functions as its own independent audio channel so teachers can now effectively create 4 separate audio groups.
Additionally, students will be able to more easily identify partners by looking for their Team Number. Students grouped together in the same team will see a number below their avatar. Students can quickly gather in a team by looking for the team number.
