iED Europe 2012 Paris Summit Registration Open

Immersive Education Europe – Paris Summit

Registration is now open for the 2nd European Immersive Education Summit, which will take place on the 26th and 27th November 2012 at the École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (Paris, France). 

The theme for the 2nd European Immersive Education (iED) Summit is: Immersive Education: combining creativity, art and pedagogy

The two-day event is open to the global academic community and experts in immersion, simulation, learning games, virtual reality and full, augmented and mixed reality.

The École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris has the mission to provide artistic, scientific and technical training for creative designers engaged in design and research in all aspects of the decorative arts. EnsAD is involved in research on the creation of artistic and shared online spaces, exploring the aesthetic and sociological implications of immersive 3D environments.

The 2nd European iED summit will build on this theme, exploring how virtual spaces can be used for innovative forms of teaching and learning, fostering creativity and artistic expression. This will be rooted in new technological developments in the fields of virtual, augmented and mixed reality. There will also be a strong emphasis on pedagogy and effective design and evaluation of solutions, with case studies from active practitioners in this emerging cross-disciplinary domain.
