Description: The practices of educational applications in virtual worlds have obtained many concerns among educators and researchers over the past few years. To respond the increasing demands of practitioners applying virtual worlds in educational settings, the first workshop on Real Education in Second Life was held in conjunction with The 18th International Conference on Computers in Education (ICCE2010). To expand the participations and influences, the second workshop on Real Education in Second Life was renamed as Real Education in Virtual Worlds on 19th ICCE2011. We had a fruitful harvest in the workshop last year. The theme of this year will focus on foreign language learning and teaching (FLLT). All the researchers and educators of language learning and teaching or educational applications in virtual worlds such as Second Life, online games, virtual reality, augmented reality, etc. are very welcome to join us. A forum will be provided in this two-hour workshop for international participants to share knowledge, experiences, and concerns on related issues in Virtual Worlds and explore the directions for future research collaborations.
