We currently have a trillion-dollar problem in healthcare; 47 million people live with dementia worldwide, and this number is growing rapidly (World Alzheimer Report, 2016). What if we could reduce these costs by changing the way we approach customer service for our clients? Evidence shows that if we are able to make each client’s experience more personalized by providing in-the-moment performance support to our staff, we can be more effective and efficient. If we can provide our staff the ability to use their mobile devices to see the customer's care preferences, life history, favorite music, hobbies, and more on demand, we can provide that personalized care. Now, what if we could solve these problems with an elegantly simple solution leveraging augmented reality?Read More

Could we do it?Read More
Immersive reality is cool and mysterious, but faculty often have difficulty seeing how to tie the use of it into learning objectives. Additionally, the vast technology associated with it seems out of range for the classroom. So how do you incorporate what is often a singular experience into a classroom opportunity? More importantly, how do you engage students as content creators? This session will address the pilot experiments and result of a multidisciplinary classroom approach using virtual reality, 360-video, and Google Expedition into coursework. The results speak volumes to where this is going.Read More
Augmented reality is a widely-used technology in games, marketing, and everyday apps, but what about learning and development? Where do you get started? How should you use it?
