I am pleased that I am an Invited Speaker on “Nanoscience, Nanotechnology & Metaverses Conceptualization and Visualization” 2nd International Meet & Expo on Nanotechnology (NANOMEET2022), to be held in Edinburgh, Scotland from August 15-17, 2022
This presentation focuses on the intersections of nanotechnology with Augmented Reality Digital Technologies (ARDT’s) and transdisciplinary pedagogy. ARDT’s such as Metaverses have the potential to improve educator and learner accessibility to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology for both teaching and learning. Nanotechnology encompasses the understanding of the fundamental physics, chemistry, biology, and technology of nanometre-scale objects, whereas nanoscience is the study of phenomena on the scale of 1-100 nanometers. Nano education calls for learners to conceptualize nanoscale objects and processes. Scientific advances in fields such as nanoscience and nanotechnology require a corresponding response in the educational community. Innovative pedagogical approaches intertwined with cross-curricular frameworks and ARDTs might help institutions, educators and learners to explore and learn about novel nanoscience and nanotechnology concepts. ARDTs digital capabilities encompass personalized education, simulations, interactive instructor-facilitated learning, AI-driven tutors, and hyper-realistic immersive experiences. Interactive visualization in ARDTs might become a potential solution for providing access to the nanoworld through active exploration of nanoscale concepts and principles. The presentation will close with recommendations on transdisciplinary pedagogy curriculum development and free educational resources including ARDTs for transdisciplinary nano education.
