Immersive Connections: Teaching, Learning, and Creating in XR at Ithaca College
This talk explores lessons learned from implementing VR in a pilot at Ithaca College’s Teacher Education Program. The talk includes the perspectives of the instructional technology lead, as well as faculty, student, and commercial perspectives on what makes for a successful immersive learning experience in higher education. Using Lenovo’s VR Classroom solution to control headsets and content, Ithaca is deploying Uptale and Mozilla Hubs to create its own materials for a teach-the-teacher program and using Veative to practice teaching STEM topics to K-12 learners. Attendees at this session will learn how and why to use immersive learning in the classroom and hear real-world lessons learned from this pilot.
