PADLA invites you to join us in exploring hot topics in the world of learning technologies. One presentation will address the next step in the creation of virtual reality learning technology and the other will explore the creation of a new methodology to meet the challenge of learning retention.
Villanova CAVE Tour
Attendees will take part in a guided tour of Villanova University's Immersive Studies CAVE which provides viewers with an immersive experience viewing and interacting with 3D virtual-reality worlds, 3D big-data displays, and 3D models of real-world locations and objects. Some of the facility's features include:
- An 18-ft wide by 10-ft deep by 7.5-ft high enclosure within which viewers can interact with a virtual world.
- A extendable projected ceiling. This means the Villanova CAVE can be operated to project on either three walls and a floor, or three walls and a ceiling.
- Integration with a robot (Seemore) designed at Villanova that carries a spherically immersive video camera array for capturing video that covers 360 degrees horizontally and 280 degrees vertically. This video can be played and controlled interactively in the Villanova CAVE.
- A commitment to support researchers across Villanova as well as collaborate with academic and industry researchers around the world.
Nine Ways to Implement Continuous Learning and Solve the Forgetting Problem
Attendees will actively participate in a workshop conducted by Steve Just, Chief Learning Officer of Intela Learning. This workshop covers the science of learning and remembering, and why learners forget. It highlights nine practical continuous learning strategies to overcome the forgetting problem.
Years of research have shown that 60-80% of what is taught in courses (instructor-led or eLearning) is not transferred to the job. This has been a source of frustration to trainers for decades. But we now have a solution to this problem because we are at the beginning of a new technology-enabled era in learning: the era of Continuous Learning.
