Extended reality is no longer just for sci-fi films. As technology becomes ever more ubiquitous and affordable, immersive technological experiences are increasingly accessible both to educators and the individual.
Virtual and altered reality technology is already playing a major part in numerous fields from engineering to entertainment, but how can we better prepare for this new world? Technology-based teaching promotes personalised and customised learning experiences, but how will this shape the future of education and what opportunities and challenges does it present? This panel aims to explore such questions and examine how immersive technology will increasingly play a central role in our learning, both in and out of the classroom.
