EdSurge: Live The Future of VR in Higher Ed

EdSurge Live: The Future of VR in Higher Education

Tues, March 6, 2018 | 2:30 – 3:30 PM Central Time

Live from SXSWedu

Description

Will the classroom of the future be strapped to students’ faces? Colleges are experimenting with the latest wave of virtual-reality technology, which proponents see as opening up a new frontier in experiential education. But the technology also raises questions—both logistical (how do you lead a group of students on a VR field trip?) and ethical (will the tech end up furthering social isolation?).


To address these and other questions, we’re holding a live video discussion on Tuesday, March 6 at 2:30 p.m. CT. We’ll be streaming live from the SXSWedu conference in Austin, but anyone can jump in from their computer.


We’ll be joined by two guests to get the conversation started and answer your questions: Maya Georgieva, director of digital learning for the The New School. Rob Kadel, assistant director of research in education innovation at Georgia Tech’s Center for 21st Century Universities.
