On December 22, Columbia Global Centers | Beijing invites you to the second panel discussion of Columbia Beijing Education Panel Series, discussing the practice of VR/AR application in education.

New technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Virtual Reality (VR) are increasingly applied to education. Augmented Reality (AR) is an extension of VR technology. It sets up virtual information in the real environment, allowing learners to interact with learning content in a virtual-real combined environment using a computer or mobile device.

This lecture introduces the status quo of the AR learning environment and the future development prospects in K-12 education, and shares the AR educational application cases from VR/AR+Education Lab in Beijing  Normal University.
