Virtual Reality for Learning - What's the Real Story?
with Hugh Seaton,
CEO of Aquinas
Wednesday, MARCH 14, 2018
65 Allerton Street
Boston, MA 02119
Virtual reality is getting a lot of attention lately, and looks likely to become another important way we engage with learners. But what is “virtual reality?” What about “augmented reality” or “mixed reality?” How do these technologies promise to improve learning, and what capabilities are available right now?
Join us at this fascinating event where we’ll answer these questions and more, review the state of the VR industry, provide some examples of how it is being used currently, and share takeaways to understand what sorts of learning virtual, augmented, and mixed reality will benefit. We’ll also review the concepts of presence, embodiment, the proteus effect, and provide opportunities for attendees to experience virtual reality themselves!
Dinner will be provided. We hope to see you on March 14th!
