The Directorate for Learning and Assessment Programmes is organising a number of workshops entitled Immersive Learning in STEM: Exploring the potential of Virtual Reality in STEM Education. The aim of the workshop is to introduce educators to Virtual Reality (VR) as a digital technology tool, used to create a simulated environment. Participants will also explore its’ potential applications in STEM teaching and learning (including Google Expeditions). The workshop will be facilitated by Mr Klaus Conrad, educational technologist specialising in immersive media, gamification and transformative classroom technologies.
The workshops are scheduled for Monday 1stApril and Wednesday 3rdApril 2019 and will be held at the Science Centre (Pembroke). The workshops are partly funded through the European Union H2020 research and innovation programme – project Scientix 3 coordinated by European Schoolnet. Applications are received on a first come first served basis, as places are limited.
