Topic:Virtual reality for Diversity and Inclusion through empathy in social interaction simulations.
Join us in an informative session @APPortunity (24th January, 2018, Duration: 45 Minutes, 3:00 PM to 3:45 PM) in one of our Session Halls for “AR/VR/MR”.
Never before VR had there been a technology that can literally put you in the shoes of another. The implications of presence in VR for perspective taking will have huge implications for the social sciences as well as the way we learn about complex social concepts.
At this session we will learn how VR will change the way we learn about social concepts, what we have learnt at Equal Reality along our journey. How our clients and partners are co-designing this revolutionary use of VR. What the future holds and how the development of the technology will change the landscape for education in Diversity and Inclusion.
