PDXedTech Meetup: Future of AR/VR/MR in Education

Recent advancements in mixed, augmented, and virtual reality ("MR", "AR", and "VR" respectively) have led to increased interest in re-examining their merit in K-12 and higher education.

What might the role of VR/AR/MR be in the classroom of tomorrow? How could these technologies be used for teaching and learning? Are they just a different way to do the same thing? Or, do they re-define and enable new forms of instruction and pedagogy that were never before possible?

These are just some of the questions we will explore, discuss, and practice with at the next PDXedTech meetup, an event of the NW Education Cluster. Whether as a tool for classroom management, data analysis, collaboration, or instruction, these technologies have a promising—though uncharted—future in education.

This is your chance for hands-on practice and experimentation with a variety of devices and contribute your ideas to the discussion.
