There are still some places available for the workshop organised by Fair Didacta Italy on augmented Virtual reality and immersive environments to foster learning. Initially, there were only two workshops scheduled, but they were immediately sold out, therefore a new workshop on 23 September at 1pm was added.
In the workshop, participants, led by an expert teacher, will have the chance to experience a digital virtual environment and try out its possible application at school. As emphasised by the researcher Andrea Benassi « This type of teaching activity is gaining traction in Italy and it’s something our teachers are already experimenting, for example using platforms such as Edmondo, the virtual world for school, or the popular game Minecraft».
How do I enrol?
Online booking to the more than 80 events of Fair Didacta has already opened! If you are a teacher you can ask schools for the recognition of the training and workshop activities as in-service training. Teachers have to book at least 4 workshops, included in the ticket, which will give 1 ECT.
