What are the latest tools, trends, and technology breakthroughs that can be leveraged to make learning more actively engaging with greater empathy, heightened relevance and overall impact across a multi-generational membership base? VR and AR! Although this technology has been used for years for entertainment purposes and gaming, the decline in the cost of the technology provides an opportunity to use for educational purposes. Let’s explore this spectrum from adaptive learning techniques that incorporate branched content to customize each learner’s journey, to augmented reality (AR) generating just-in-time interactive experiences leveraging mobile apps to augmented intelligence through chatbots and virtual reality (VR) simulations designed to reinforce critical thinking skills.   In this session you will be introduced to these resources.

This hands-on session is a continuation of Part I.  In this session participants will see immersive videos that can be viewed via VR headset or mobile phone VR Reader of specific accounting scenarios. In this session, you will receive practical guidance and collaborate with others in breakout groups to reimagine the learner experience, make recommendations, and interact first-hand with real course examples, simulations and prototypes from the AICPA and the authors, utilizing disruptive technology. I share all of these videos via me YouTube Channel and website www.drvpaz.com. All of the AICPA videos are available for educational purposes.
