Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

With the global focus on authentic synchronous and asynchronous experiences for all members of educational communities there has come a new era of immersive and experiential learning platforms which are accessible to all learners from Pre-Kindergarten through to University and beyond.

Web XR Platforms such as FrameVR.io and Virtual Reality coding applications such as CoSpaces are powerful yet lower barrier entry platforms for learners at any stage of education.

The session will demonstrate the deep use of these technologies through a structured primary years inquiry learning framework.
