Our indefatigable Val presented at the Library 2.022 mini-conference: “Virtual Reality and Learning: Leading the Way,” held online on Tuesday, March 29th, 2022.
Library 2.0 recognized the rise and importance of Virtual Reality in libraries, education, museum, and professional learning spheres:
Virtual Reality is a social and digital technology that uniquely promises to transform learning, build empathy, and make personal and professional training more effective and economical.
The organizers issued a call for proposals to begin a national conversation about the use of XR/immersive learning technology and about making content available to all users, creating spaces where digital inclusion and digital literacy serves those who need it the most.
