Can virtual environments improve outcomes for all learners?

DEFI, the Digital Education Futures Initiative at Hughes Hall, is exploring that possibility with two online events this month

Thursday 15 July

Simulated Virtual Internships: Linking Enterprise and Education

The Virtual Internship Project dissemination and discussion event

Thursday 22 July

Immersive Technology – Education as a portal to virtual worlds

Kicking off the DEFI Digital Learning monthly seminar series, in partnership with ARM

Featuring panellists from Cambridge, the UK, Spain, Mexico, and the USA, these events are attracting a global audience of educators and researchers. There’s no cost to attend these programs — simply register in advance to participate live or watch the event recordings.

Future programs will explore topics such as STEAM (the convergence of STEM learning and the arts), AI, machine learning, and gaming.

DEFI was launched in January of this year to work with global partners in industry, policy and practice to creatively explore the field of possibilities that digital technology opens up for education; developing new models of education in order to rigorously investigate their implications and potential impact.

In just a few months, DEFI has gained more than 800 interested followers, while hosting presenters from organisations such as OECD, Raspberry Pi, the Cambridge Partnership for Education, Dipont Education, and ARM Education. Learn more and register to receive updates at https://www.deficambridge.org/
