Event description

Description

Virtual and augmented reality promise to fundamentally alter how we create, learn, and interact with the world around us. During XR in EDU on January 30, 2018, we will explore how best to get beyond “wow this is so cool” to deploying real world XR that has an impact on education, training, and workforce development.

Education stakeholders will demand to see more discussion, demonstration, and proofs of value and ROI from VR and AR in education in the coming year.

We will ask how does the educational community effectively implement XR at scale. We will hear from educators, students, developers, and XR companies who are thinking about how immersive technology can enhance learning in K-12, Higher Ed, and the Enterprise.

  • How might VR and AR be valuable and/or enhance the learning environment?
  • What roles do perspective and empathy play in a student’s VR and AR experience?
  • What types of VR and VR content prove useful in an educational setting?
  • In a classroom setting, what might break the immersive experience for students?
  • How might VR support Project Based Learning learn-by-doing initiatives?
