Project start date: April 2019
The Immersive Learning Network (iLRN) has partnered with IEEE ICICLE, EDUCAUSE, and the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) to create The State of XR and Immersive Learning, a project that will combine a systematic review and synthesis of the scholarly evidence and knowledge base on XR and immersive learning with a Delphi-inspired environmental scanning and forecasting exercise in the vein of the well-known Horizon Project.
The goals of the project are to:
- distill key research findings on “what works” in the use of XR and immersive technologies for supporting and enhancing learning across a range of education, training, and lifelong learning contexts;
- identify the technological, pedagogical, and other innovations in the XR and immersive learning arena that exhibit the most promise, along with the major trends and challenges related to their adoption and implementation over the next five years;
- highlight priority areas in need of further exploration, investigation, and development.
Opportunities to contribute research, examples, and other materials for consideration by the project will be made available via this website in the coming weeks.
A limited number of sponsorship places are also still available.
Inquiries about The State of XR and Immersive Learning may be directed to the project leader, Mark J. W. Lee. If you would like to receive updates about this project and other relevant information pertaining to XR and immersive learning research, please consider joining iLRN to be added to our network and mailing list. Basic membership is free of charge.
