The world of emerging immersive technology is expanding exponentially by the day and offers seemingly boundless opportunities for increases in the effectiveness and efficiency of training in virtually any field. In combination with the ever-present constraints of reduced budgets and limited resources, there is a real temptation to apply virtual, augmented, and mixed reality as a one-size-fits-all solution to reduce live training. But how do you know if those are the best choices and if they indeed improve learning versus negatively impacting it? How do you know what the optimal combination of technologies and training modalities is to create a holistic, truly immersive environment to accomplish the training objectives? Join us to hear from the innovators behind a unique framework based on experiential learning theory and the principles of flow applied to the concept of learning experience design.
Selected as a Best Paper Nominee by the Education Subcommittee at I/ITSEC 2021, the framework supports the decision-making of the use of immersive technologies to increase the potential of preventing loss of training effectiveness and maximizing the potential benefits of increased student performance and program efficiency. Developed at the USAF Air University, the methodology has been implemented by the Air Education Training Command 19th Air Force unit with impressive results. Join us to hear what’s next and how you can engage to utilize this framework as well.
