Panel: The State of XR Education in South Florida

50% of first year’s STEM students will fail or drop out of their intended track.  According to research one of the competencies needed for success in STEM classes is spatial reasoning, and this competency can be taught and XR is a perfect vehicle. What is AR, how is it being used today in our community, and why should you care? Join us for this panel of leaders from South Florida public schools and colleges and universities to learn why and how they are using XR as a teaching tool in their classrooms.

Moderator: Denise Mendez (Microsoft)

Panelists: UM, Broward Public Schools, Case Western Reserve University, FIU, and MDC (Mauricio Ferrazza). Dr. Lupe Diaz was invited to represent MDCPS.

Breakout Session 01: 2PM to 2:45PM

Panel: Making a VR/AR App for Your Classroom

From the MAGIC Halloween Hackathon to Developing a VR Math VR application, MAGIC students with the guidance of Math professor Manini are developing this simulation to be tested during the Math Summer Academy and brought into the classroom in the Fall term. All funded by the Legacy STEM Grant, who’s providing students with a stipend and faculty with task points to develop high impact practices for the classroom. MAGIC students and professor Manini will provide an overview of this journey and lessons learned.
