Come Learn about VR & AR: #TheNextEvolution of Education

Some feel that education is the area in which VR and AR will make the most revolutionary impact on society. From AR tabletop displays that come alive in the classroom to watching the history of a neighborhood unfold through VR as the class field trip travels through time, education will be radically changed through immersive tech. How is this going to be rolled out across the educational field and who will get the first benefits and who might get left out? With retention stats showing VR/AR dramatically improving learning capabilities how will this change approaches to teaching and classroom activities? We will explore these questions and more with our experts who are at the forefront of these new educational horizons.

Come hear from the experts how immersive technology can enhance Education, and how Education is supporting the adoption of virtual reality and augmented reality.
