VR Learning Experience


Virtual Reality Workshop Description

This workshop explores the impact of virtual reality on education. Participants will have hands-on experiences with VR devices to analyze how this immersive Wearable Technology reshapes the teaching-learning environment and institutional culture. New forms of experiential learning will draw upon visually rich virtual and augmented reality experiences. VR is raising fundamental questions about the shape of future media, narrative and storytelling. Technology is rapidly moving from information access to personal experience, where deeply compelling learning resources are immediately available before our eyes, requiring profound innovation in pedagogy and learning space design and institutional culture.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the rapid developments in Virtual Reality and Wearable Technology and the impact on Education
  • How Virtual Reality devices will disrupt cultural and educational spaces and challenge our understanding of privacy and data analytics
