Rushforth Shares Virtual Reality Research at AATSP

February 20, 2017

Dr. Michael Rushforth, Senior Lecturer in Spanish at UTSA, presented his research on using virtual reality in the classroom to teach languages at the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese meeting at San Antonio College.  Rushforth is using virtual reality headsets in his classroom to assist students who are beginning to learn Spanish.  The headsets allow the students to virtually visit Spanish-speaking countries and experience such sights as Machu Pichu in Peru or Chichen Itza in Mexico.


Rushforth's innovative teaching technique was recently featured in an article on UTSA Today.  Virtual reality technology can be adapted to the study of any language.
