KEYNOTE :: Crossing the Horizon together: Scanning, transforming, and sharing “What Works” in Immersive XR
Apr 6 @ 11:00 AM – 11:50 AM

Keynote Presenter: Dr. Jonathon Richter, Salish Kootenai College and Executive Director, Immersive Learning Research Network
https://vwbpe.org/conference/keynotes-and-speakers-2019
Description:

The Immersive Learning Research Network (iLRN) facilitates collaboration between computer scientists, game developers, educators, learning scientists, and other research professionals to develop and showcase the scientific, technical, and applied potential of immersive learning. iLRN has recently partnered with The ICICLE XR for Learning and Performance Augmentation SIG and others, including EDUCAUSE, and the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) on the “State of XR and Immersive Learning” project, which combines a systematic review and synthesis of the scholarly evidence and knowledge base on XR and immersive learning with a Delphi-inspired environmental scanning and forecasting exercise in the vein of the well-known Horizon Project. The project is sponsored by Unity Technologies, HP, zSpace, Adobe, and Dassault Systèmes.

In this session, iLRN Executive Director Dr. Jonathon Richter will provide details about this new collective effort and unveil ways learning professionals can both contribute to and gain from a synthesis of current and future virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), and other XR technologies for supporting and enhancing learning and human performance in evidence-based and research-grounded ways.

German Reform Education : Past and Present
Apr 7 @ 08:00 AM – 09:00 AM

Host: Santiboy Resident
Description: In Germany, in early 20th century, responding to restrictive schooling, a couple of alternative educational ideas were transferred into operating schools. While differing a lot in detail, most approaches labeled “Reformpaedagogik” developed school communities that were inspired by the idea that students and teachers should develop their own schools and organize both, curriculum and school life around their initiatives. SL Salem School Landschulheim tries to catch these ideals into a modern virtual.
Learn about the ideas of a “Reformpaedagogik” School.
Experience part of day in a Landschulheim (rural school based on the ideas of “reformpaedagogik”).
