Landscape of XR Education Trends & Design Patterns

After conducting over 1500 oral history interviews since 2014, Voices of VR Podcast host, Kent Bye, will be reviewing some of the trends he's been seeing in educational applications of XR ranging from enterprise training to using XR in K-12 contexts. He'll present an experiential design frame work that integrates insights from game design, web design, narrative design & film, and experiential design from immersive theater and the XR community. What are the challenges of assessment? How can inquiry-based learning be explored in immersive spaces? What's the future of knowledge representation, memory palaces, and curiosity-based learning look like using immersive technologies?
