Cutting Edge Instructional Technology-virtual language simulations and training

The first URL below is a general description of what some folks are working on in terms of providing language practice in a simulated environment using virtual reality/video game/voice recognition technology. The second is a video of a professor explaining how the program works with actual samples of the program. No comment about who is funding it and why. Just something to think about and it’s impact on language instruction. Note the description of the task as "tactical language learning"...
