Description

This talk explores the transformative potential of combining digital twins and augmented reality (AR) technologies to address the challenges of high training costs and facility management downtime. While these technologies are already extensively used in gaming and marketing, the crucial question is: can they go beyond their current applications, and more importantly, are these technologies ready for broader implementation? Attendees will gain valuable insights from successful case studies and practical strategies for effectively implementing these technologies across diverse industries.

Description

In the rapidly evolving educational landscape, extended reality (XR) is being explored as a frontier for medical training. Dr. Ruby Woodward, drawing from her interdisciplinary research at Cambridge University and hands-on experience with GigXR, will delve into the potential of these technologies, guiding listeners through the intersection of XR and medical education.

She will introduce attendees to HoloScenarios—an innovative application that leverages XR to produce hyperrealistic holographic simulations emulating high-risk acute medical scenarios. Moreover, she will discuss the integration of conversational artificial intelligence (AI) with teaching methods to enhance communication training for healthcare practitioners.

The talk will emphasize the importance of aligning such technological innovations with established medical principles and learning theories. By highlighting insights from collaborative endeavors with experts spanning academia, clinical practice, and technology, the discussion will underscore the multidisciplinary approach essential for guaranteeing the efficacy and integrity of XR in medical education. This presentation will elucidate the symbiosis of XR, AI, medicine, and pedagogy.

Join Dr. Woodward as she outlines the hurdles, breakthroughs, and innovative solutions driving the future of medical education in the XR domain.

Using Virtual Reality can be highly effective when it comes to training. But how do you create such an immersive learning experience that is both engaging and leaves an impact?

In this talk, Warp VR CEO Thijs de Vries and Learning & Development specialist Nadine Steiger from Erste Bank share their unique vision on building interactive, immersive training scenarios with 360° video, storytelling and gamification. They will share what type of training topics Erste Bank is using VR for and how they have easily deployed and scaled this form of training to thousands of learners.

Join in to hear:
• Erste Bank's best practices on using VR for training
• How to combine gamification, storytelling and 360° video
• About Warp VR, the no-code platform that is used to create these VR training courses

Description

The Åland Islands, or Åland, is an autonomous region of Finland. Comprising around 6,700 islands, this Swedish-speaking archipelago is in the Baltic Sea. Many young people live across this region and find connecting to youth services and peer groups a challenge, especially in winter.

Barry Haughey (Founder HoloGen, Dublin Ireland) and Mia Hanstrom (Director of SKUNK youth service, Aland Island) partnered in working together to pilot a wide regional youth project using VR. The idea was to demonstrate that existing support for young people can be delivered using immersive technology, bringing the service to the participant. Historically, some young people have been unable to avail of creative, educational and social activities because they were unable to get to a physical environment, we aimed to demonstrate this was no longer the case.

For this pilot, we used the VR platform, Rec Room to create a private youth club and open a weekly meetup where participants, shared stories, played multiuser games and tournaments and even tried some mindfulness. All of these sessions were hosted by experienced youth workers from the Aland region.

In this Talk, we will hear from 2 young people, Kasper Dreyer and Julia Strand, who were participants in the VR pilot and will share some of their experiences, Mia Hanstrom (Director of SKUNK youth service, Aland Island) and Barry Haughey (Founder of HoloGen) who will discuss the growing potential of immersive technology within rural youth work and education.
