Immersion Technologies (AR/VR/MR) as a Translator: Developing Global Citizens for Education and Industry

This session illuminates the extensive range of networking opportunities that immersion-based educational environments provide. Educational exchange programs offer portals between worlds by facilitating further opportunities for translation. Utilizing emerging technologies (such as Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and Mixed Reality (MR)) within cultural exchange programs enhances capabilities for connecting cultures around the globe, changing how technology reaches people. This session will link students, teachers, and administrators within ecosystems of global communities, universities, and industries through a range of immersion-driven topics. Participants can expect live demos using VR and AR technologies, Immersive Pedagogical Strategies, DIY Interdisciplinary Research Cultures, Pragmatic Budgeting Approaches, and more.
