Don't Panic: Let's Thoughtfully Develop the Future of Education with Generative Artificial Intelligence
In a year of extraordinary world events, the year 2023 is poised to become the "Year of Mainstream Artificial Intelligence," with generative AI tools revolutionizing various aspects of our lives. These cutting-edge technologies present unique opportunities to reshape education and cultivate future-focused students and adults. In this webinar, Dr. Neiffer invites you to explore the potential of AI tools as powerful allies rather than replacements for educators. Discover how to leverage AI to enhance your teaching capabilities and empower your students to excel in an increasingly AI-driven world. Together, we will address common concerns, deepen our understanding of AI's potential in education, and uncover new opportunities for education at all levels. Join us on this transformative journey as we navigate the future of learning and embrace the superpowers AI can offer to educators and students alike.
Interpreting Immersive Learning Cases with the Immersion Cube and the Immersive Learning Brain
This presentation will provide hands-on discussion on how to classify and describe cases of immersive learning, by clarifying what is going on at three different levels: actions, practices, and, strategies. We'll employ the immersion cube concept to classify actions, and the immersive learning brain clusters to identify occurrence of practices and strategies. Further, we will explore how this enables practitioners and researchers to identify opportunities to change their interventions and explore novel pathways.
Neurodiversity in Focus: Pioneering Inclusive Strategies in Immersive Learning Environments
Navigating the complexities of designing immersive learning systems, there is a nuanced interplay between the distinct needs and inherent capabilities of neurodiverse learners. My talk is a reflective journey through the myriad of projects I have spearheaded, all with the intention of enhancing the educational experiences of autistic and other neurodivergent learners. It's crucial to recognize instances where our systems may have fallen short in capturing the authentic experiences of our users. These instances, while sometimes disheartening, have been critical in shaping our design processes, ensuring that the learner's voice and experience remain at the forefront. As we continue to innovate, our steadfast aim is to develop immersive educational environments that not only connect with but also elevate neurodiverse learners. This talk is a call to action for both students and faculty to engage, collaborate, and contribute to the evolution of a truly inclusive educational paradigm.
