Description

VR and AR in Education: Crafting Immersive Experiences in Humanities, Social Sciences, and STEM

This half-day workshop is tailored to teachers, instructional designers, and creators of immersive experiences. We will start with a fast-paced review of platforms, content examples, emerging practices, and strategies to help you kick-start your own VR and AR projects. This hands-on workshop offers participants the opportunity to experiment with a variety of immersive tools including VR cameras, mobile headsets, 3D volumetric scanners and curated content and platforms.

During the second part of the workshop, we will deep dive into the making of immersive experiences. Teams will discuss ideas on using VR and AR in the Humanities, the Social Sciences and STEM education. Participants will use a blueprint developed by Digital Bodies - Immersive Learning to help craft immersive experiences with a focus on the sense of presence, empathy, and agency. In a collaborative exercise, you will learn how to craft and design immersive learning experiences in VR and AR.

Participants will develop a deeper understanding of emerging practices for creating immersive experiences along with a set of tools and ideas for immediate implementation. You will be ready to lead VR and AR projects in your classroom.

Participants in the half-day Thursday morning workshop are welcome to join the Wednesday evening Happy Hour from 5:00pm-6:30pm. Meet and network with participants in a beautiful space overlooking the city lights of Columbus Circle and Central Park.
