On Friday 24th March, Tech Trends will make its way to Switzerland to what has become a highlight of the tech entrepreneurial calendar – the annual START Summit. Organized by a diligent team from the University of St. Gallen, it has become Europe’s leading student-run conference for entrepreneurship and technology attracting more than 1500 attendees last year and already nearly sold out for its 2017 edition.
I will be hosting a fireside chat discussing the potential of Mixed Reality technology to transform education and training. My guest will be entrepreneur Alex Yakubov, CEO and Founder of HoloGroup, a startup that develops apps and solutions for Mixed Reality, including HoloStudy, which uses the Microsoft HoloLens platform to bring lessons to life through interactive 3D holograms.
What will this type of visually-led learning mean for students, teachers and for the next (and current) generation of people joining the workforce?
As well as gaining insight from Alex on the practicalities of developing Mixed Reality applications for education, their experience of crowdfunding, and his views on the future of the technology, we will attempt to explain the differences between Mixed Reality and Virtual Reality applications, and explore with the audience where the future of this exciting technology might lead. If you’re planning on being at the summit, be sure to join us, and feel free to say hello in person or on Twitter @alicebonasioHow will Mixed Reality change the landscape for teachers, students, and the future workforce?
