English Teaching Program
An Innovative Language Training Program for Newcomers
Helping newcomers improve their language skills using virtual reality and artificial intelligence
We’re hosting an insightful conference on March 19 to discuss the research findings from “Engag3D”, a collaborative research project between the Syrian Canadian Foundation and the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM). This research explores the pedagogical affordances and implications of VR and AI as language learning tools. We aim to empower newcomers to enhance their language skills in an engaging manner, facilitating their integration into Canada.
Join us and get the chance to connect with stakeholders from the language and technology fields.
Engag3d is a language training program using the latest learning technologies. In partnership with the Department of Language Studies at the University of Toronto Mississauga, SCF will pilot different learning methods via Virtual Reality (VR) and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
The goal of the program is to explore how newcomers can improve their language skills in an innovative and engaging way, to accelerate their integration and develop a sense of belonging to their new home, Canada.
