While media and technology have increasingly helped to flatten our global society, this often also poses both a dilemma and an opportunity. How can we foster a civil and caring society in a world with increasingly polarizing viewpoints? How do we care for our environment in a world of rapidly expanding industrialization? How can we provide honor and care for aging populations? How might we better think about and address issues of social justice? Join Dawn Berkeley as she explores these questions and explains how we can help develop students' empathy using powerful, innovative learning experiences with Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR). She will explain how to use Google Expeditions to provide perspective and to help students experience life from someone else's shoes. Come discover how AR and VR can enable students to deepen their understanding of their place in the world.
