K-12 STEM Workshop: Extended Educational Realities – Virtual and Augmented Reality Showcases Engaging Remote School Communities
Extended Educational Realities — Virtual and Augmented Reality Showcases Engaging Remote School Communities

Watch the presentation video

Our primary technology framework has a driving vision that students learn to recognise the power that they, as an individual, possess to enact change in the world. Students investigate real-world scenarios where small changes at a local level create big impacts at a global level (Think Global, Act Local).
Learn about a diverse range of technical solutions for engaging the whole school community through a range of web-accessible platforms. Explore immersive and interactive learning experiences, virtual reality coding, WebXR platforms and augmented reality tools for showcasing student-generated solutions through whole-school inquiry frameworks.
This presentation will look at how students can use virtual and augmented reality through online and mobile platforms to transform the physical learning experience, showcase their understanding and retell events as part of an individualised learning journey.
See how to implement VR, AR and XR into a primary classroom environment while promoting student inquiry and providing quality feedback.
With the global focus on authentic synchronous and asynchronous experiences for all members of educational communities there has come a new era of immersive and experiential learning platforms which are accessible to all learners from Pre-Kindergarten through to University and beyond.
Web XR Platforms such as FrameVR.io and Virtual Reality coding applications such as CoSpaces are powerful yet lower barrier entry platforms for learners at any stage of education.
The session will demonstrate the deep use of these technologies through a structured primary years inquiry learning framework.

Discover how students become responsive to needs in their communities, leverage technologies and take action to solve real-world issues. Learn how E-STEAM projects empower students to recognise their ability to facilitate change. In this session, participants will be shown how VR and XR experiences can be used to transcend learning beyond the classroom and in to emerging industries.
Come to this session and discover how Australian students are using FrameVR - a free, multi-user, extended reality platform, to create virtual tours and galleries of work for online visitors. Listen to students as they share their learning experiences using FrameVR and learn how they can authentically integrate immersive technologies to engage, explore and create.
