Workshop description:

Attendees will learn about the latest technologies, particularly in mixed reality (virtual & augmented reality) and robotics, that they can use to enhance learning in their classroom. Through hands-on sessions, attendees will become familiar with the technology, and these will be supplemented by a discussion of how best to use them in pedagogy.
