University of São Paulo: Immersive education can change the way we teach and learn

The concept of immersive education – which puts the student in direct contact with the pedagogical content through modern technologies – will be the theme of the mini-course that the Alfredo Bosi Chair of Basic Education at USP will offer this Tuesday, the 19th, at 7 pm, at the professor’s channel on Youtube . The event is free and open to all interested parties, with no registration required.

“This mini-course will present educational experiences based on the concept and practices of immersive education, proposing reflections to the public based on presentations and debates”, according to a note published on the chair’s website . “Such practices use a combination of interactive 3D graphics, simulation technologies, video games, virtual reality and technical resources in the internet standard, interconnected with the development of educational activities.”

Also according to the note, the practices of immersive education can serve as a basis for the application of interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary pedagogical processes. “This connection of practices and possibilities can help to overcome traditional ways of learning and teaching in basic and higher education.”

Entitled Immersive Education with Support in Plural Knowledge and Integrated Technologies – Sharing Experiences , the mini-course will be taught by a team of professors formed by Anna Carolina Muller, Elmara Pereira de Souza, Jorge Franco, Romero Tori and Roseli Lopes.
