    Immersive Learning across Latin America: state of research, use cases and projects

  • Special Track Chairs

  • The purpose of this special track is:

    1. To showcase the work done by academics, practitioners, industry and other stakeholders in Latin America.
    2. To foster the collaboration between Latin America and the rest of the world.

    Target audiences:

    Description

    Latin America is a region with many developing countries in which the adoption of immersive learning has been restricted by different factors such as connectivity, affordability of technology, lack of training and lack of content. Despite these constraints, some researchers and companies have been developing immersive learning projects that consider the limitations in the region and the possibilities of immersive technologies. This special track is proposed by the Colombia and Ecuador iLRN chapters in an effort to disseminate and give visibility to the projects created in the region. The purpose of this special track is twofold: 1) To showcase the work done by academics, practitioners, industry and other stakeholders in the region in this prominent conference in the field of immersive learning. 2) To foster the collaboration between Latin America and the rest of the world in the field of immersive learning and strengthen of existing collaborations.

    This special track is relevant for the conference because it allows to collect evidence about the current state of research in immersive learning across Latin America and identify opportunities for collaboration and opportunities for further research in the field.

    Contributions for this special track should have been developed in Latin America or tested/evaluated in Latin American countries. Research conducted in collaboration between Latin American countries and other regions in the world is acceptable.
