As we shift into a period of a new normal, the education community is navigating how to create efficiencies and achieve effective learning methodologies. This discussion aims to help organizations better understand the landscape of digital and virtual platforms and to help educators develop informed and actionable short and long-term strategies in their transition to digital and virtual spaces.

In this session we will discuss:
- The impact of social distancing measures on current education practices
- The voids and struggles we are facing, and ways that immersive technology is helping to addressing and enhancing instruction and learning capabilities
- The current tools available in XR education
- How XR is helping to enhance the four "C's" of learning: Creativity, Collaboration, Critical Thinking and Communication and Concentration

This will be streamed live to facebook and youtube!
