Virtual Reality for education is gaining quite a lot of media attention as more educators are experimenting with this technology. During the past weeks Robin gave a few interviews in Dutch.
Kennisnet is organizing their yearly Onderzoeksconferentie (“Research Conference”) on the 28th of June 2017. Here, Robin will present a pitch of his research on Virtual Reality in education.
A short article is already available on their website. Will we see you at the conference?
Throughout the Netherlands, different events focusing on the use of Virtual Reality in libraries are being organized: lectures on VR, demonstrations of the Oculus Rift and even making your own Google Cardboard headset, to name but a few. I support these efforts, as I consider the library to be an excellent environment to help people familiarize themselves with a new medium. Simultaneously, Virtual- and Augmented Reality could become useful for libraries in the nearby future. For example, AR could be used to enrich the library, while VR could provide an alternative method of exploring digital collections.
In this post, I will discuss several projects (both old and recent) we conducted with a number of libraries.
