Our VR and AR article series is live! This summer, we are teaming up with EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) to write a series of blog posts on immersive technologies. We’ll address the fascinating developments in Virtual and Augmented Reality and how they will transform learning.
The VR and AR: Stepping Into the New Frontier of Learning series is co-authored by us, Maya Georgieva and Emory Craig, the co-founders of Digital Bodies – Immersive Learning.
Over the next months, we’ll discuss the following topics in virtual and augmented reality:
- A New World: VR and AR Tech Developments
- AR and VR in STEM: The New Frontiers in Science
- VR and AR: Driving a Revolution in Medical Education and Patient Care
- Immersive Learning in Digital Humanities
- VR and AR: Designing Spaces for Immersive Learning
- VR and AR: Learners as Creators and World Builders of Our Immersive Future
- VR and AR: The Art of Immersive Storytelling and Journalism
- VR and AR: The Ethical Challenges Ahead
- From VR and AR to Our XR Future: Transforming Higher Education
We’ve cast a wide net with these topics, but it is by no means a comprehensive list. It reflects the discussions, questions, and interests of participants in our workshop at the 2017 ELI Annual Meeting and the ELI Webinar we led this past spring.
Get Featured in Our VR and AR article series in Higher Ed
Each of our forthcoming posts in the VR and AR article series will explore opportunities, feature current implementations and share key insights. We hope to also create a space for the larger community to participate by sharing ideas and practices from ongoing initiatives.
If you already have a project underway, or are in the process of implementing one, we’d love to hear from you. We are looking for projects in STEM, Medical Education, Digital Humanities, Digital Storytelling and AI. If your project does not quite fit these topics please submit as we may be able to include it in an ELI Brief we will be writing this fall. The article series will culminate in an ELI Brief on immersive learning later this year.
You can share the details ahead of time by submitting through this form. If you wish to contact us directly, send us an email at maya(at)digitalbodies.net. And please share your thoughts by commenting and participating in the discussion part of the posts!
