SLIC : Second Life as A Collaborative Tool For Graduate Teacher Training and Developing Intercultural Communicative Competences

Abstract : SLIC (Second Life InterCulturel) was a collaboration between undergraduate students of French at Carnegie Mellon University and Masters students of FLE using ICT from Université Blaise Pascal. The project's intent was to extend the intercultural communicative competences of the undergraduates and of the graduate students as well as the teaching experiences of the latter using the synthetic world Second Life (SL). By interacting with each other in SL, students on both sides of the project collaborated in SL, where they were able to exchange cultural information on themes linked to the undergraduate course in asynchronous document exchanges via Moodle and during synchronous online meetings in SL.
