Using Computer-Simulated Haptic Force Feedback for Learning

Monday, January 28 | 4:00PM–5:00PM | Chula Vista Room (Lobby Level)
Session Type: Professional Development
Many concepts often require learners to build abstract mental models that involve invisible factors such as intangible force fields and interactions among charged particles. This session will provide an overview of how inexpensive haptics devices can be used to enhance learning and retention and will include hands-on experiences using haptic devices.

Sign up for this session at the ELI Registration Desk.
This session will be repeated from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Monday.
