Call For Papers
ST10. The Future of Education
The focus of this special track will be to explore the possible ways emerging technologies (eg immersive-reality, AI, etc.) might change future education. In this we take a very broad vision for the delivery of education stretching from formal education at (say) university through industrial training to informal lifelong learning.
The special track will seek to engage with the immersive education community in providing an opportunity for authors to write imaginative accounts of how they foresee immersive learning technologies and pedagogies changing the nature of future education.
While the track will encourage papers that make use of the Science-Fiction Prototyping methodology, it will be open to any narrative vision of the future education. This proposal is part of a vision for a twin-track event exploring the future impact of immersive learning technologies on education; the other event being a micro science-fiction competition.

This special session welcomes submissions on (but not limited to) the following topics:
