CANCELLED: EdTech Group
Hologram technology & new tech advances
The EdTech Group committee are currently collaborating with Imperial on another event which we hope will take place early next year.
This is a joint event with Imperial College Business School
The keynote presentation and panel debate will feature a demonstration of the use of and future of holograms in teaching. In 2018, the Imperial College Business School’s Ed Tech Lab debuted their hologram technology, which enables lecturers and visiting speakers to appear as 3D, life-size entities within a lecture theatre. The technology allows users to host lectures, discussion panels and round-table events in multiple classes and locations simultaneously, with a mixture of both in-person and virtual speakers present. This provides further opportunities for enhancing the learning experience, providing greater flexibility for the delivery of lectures and more opportunities for hosting world-class industry speakers.
We are excited to be co-hosting a knowledge gathering and networking opportunity for investment professionals, corporate leaders, technologists and entrepreneurs from multinationals to corporates in the EdTech space together with Imperial College Business School’s Ed Tech Lab. The lab applies cutting-edge research to create transformational online learning experiences.
