We are also pleased to invite you to join a two-day hands-on teacher development training. You will be able to assess the potential of digital tools in conducting classes, developing and visualizing courses.

The key tracks for Teacher Development School on November 7-8:

  • Augmented Reality in the Classroom with Aurasma (Prof. Jasmin Cowin)
  • Listening, Metacognition and New Technology for Second Language Learning (Vivienne M. Coutant)
  • Learning Data Visualization Tools (Polina Ermakova)

We all view the world around us through our senses and our perceptions of objects we come into contact with. Virtual and Augmented reality gives us the opportunities to alter or change some of the reality around us and have our brains respond to it. These changes in reality offer us the ability to visit and interact with objects that we may not normally have the opportunity to.
