Check out the AR and VR Scene at #ISTE22

The AR and VR Scene at ISTE 22

If you're going to the ISTE 2022 conference and you're interested in Augmented and Virtual Reality, there is definitely a lot to explore this summer! I've collected and sorted all of the AR and VR sessions happening at #ISTE22. Read on to learn more!

The ISTE 2022 conference is back in-person this Summer and I'm so excited to get back to networking and learning with my fellow educators. A topic that I've held a lot of interest in over the past few years is augmented and virtual reality in education. Since the pandemic, AR and VR implementation in K-12 classrooms slowed drastically because of the concern of transmitting COVID. But now that things are slowly getting back to normal, students are back in classrooms, and we have a better grasp on health and safety, AR and VR is becoming a hot topic again!

And it definitely has a growing interest represented in all of the amazing sessions at #ISTE22!

If AR and VR is on your list of topics to explore while at ISTE, check out this spreadsheet I created with all of the related sessions.
