Neville publishes article on digital game-based learning in second language acquisition

David Neville, assistant professor of German and director of language learning technologies, published the article “In the Classroom: Digital game-based learning in second language acquisition” in the most recent issue of The Language Educator (Volume 4, Issue 6). Published by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL), The Language Educator provides educators of all languages at all levels with comprehensive coverage of important trends and developments in foreign language education.

In his article, Neville describes the various technologies (text, 2D, and 3D) available for language educators to create digital game-based learning environments that may be used for teaching second languages. In addition to providing an overview of these technologies, Neville also highlights the interdisciplinary work done at Elon University to create a 3D game for teaching the German language and culture.
