Preview – Immersive Journeys in Education
Thursday 4th July 2019, 09:40 – 10:40
Showroom Cinema 2
The future of learning has arrived!
If you’re interested in augmented and virtual reality, teaching in schools, museums and what excites and delights children, then this session is for you. Join us as we uncover how children today learn about bugs, oceans, WW1, Vikings and Egyptians via a series of AR and VR experiences. What’s it like to be able to feel you’re in the trenches or to examine a sarcophagus in Ancient Egypt or to hold a planet in your hand? Even pre-schoolers are catered for, with Storytoys on hand to show us their AR version of Eric Carle’s ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. Meet the teams behind these passion-filled projects as we discuss how they are breaking down barriers by bringing tech into the classroom. We will have videos of their products being used by children so you’ll be able to see for yourself the impact these products can have.
Don’t party TOO hard, as it’s the first session on Thursday but it’s definitely worth getting up for!
Do join us and our four fabulous speakers from Peapodicity, Inspyro, Storytoys and Musemio.
All welcome –however bleary eyed…
