Fairy tales provide an enriching and entertaining learning opportunity for people of all ages. Our team has created a virtual world to provide individuals with a creative possibility space to learn more about the fairy-tale genre, while also drawing from key terms from literature studies, English, and Language Arts. Through the use of the virtual reality application, Open Simulator, in this initial launch of the “Land of Fairy Tales,” visitors are able to walk through and learn about components of a specific fairy tale: Little Red Riding Hood (LRRH). Learners can walk through one of two paths (versions) of LRRH, one created for younger audiences (elementary and middle school) and the other created for older students (high school and college). The design of this world utilizes Gagne’s Nine Events of Instruction, along with the use of various instructional tools and assessments, to peak visitors’ curiosity, to get users immersed in the world, and have learners walk away with newfound knowledge at the end. Join us for our presentation of this unique virtual world and come away with a new and exciting way of immersing students in a new learning experience.
