Title: Virtual and Augmented Reality: Stepping Into the New Frontier of Learning

Description: Originally a fantasy of science fiction, virtual and augmented reality are quickly entering the education landscape. This webinar will review recent and upcoming developments in virtual, augmented, and mixed reality as well as industry trends we believe will shape the future of immersive learning. VR, AR, and mixed reality are creating compelling learning experiences across the curriculum from STEM to digital humanities and medical education. Experiments suggest this is only the beginning—VR could become a social platform that will transform how we communicate, create, and collaborate. VR paired with AI engines would make personalized learning ubiquitous. As these devices and platforms enter our lives, how do we address the challenges of adoption and the design of immersive experiences that foster student engagement and creativity? We will identify devices, content examples, emerging practices, and strategies to help you kick-start your own VR and AR projects.
