Augmenting the reality of Education

 

With Covid 19 having focused educations mind on new ways of teaching some universities have been turning towards Virtual and Augmented reality options. Virtual reality headsets in general have surged during the lockdowns and new cheaper and more flexible devices have become available.

This session will consider how education is starting to explore this area. What can be done and what is being done and when can we expect to be holding these London Group meetings in a virtual 3D environment?
