It was my honor to present “The Three Pillars: Strategic Augmented Reality Digital Technologies (ARDT) Implementation” at the International Conference on Innovation in Basic – Higher Education (September 8-11, 2022) İstanbul, Türkiye (Republic of Turkey).
The purpose of this presentation was to frame and share my thoughts on The Three Pillars: Strategic Augmented Reality Digital Technologies (ARDT) Implementation for institutions of Higher Education. To offer ARDTs with functional 3D immersive spaces such as metaverses requires a robust institutional system-wide Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) discussion. TEL integrations not only ask for a highly qualified educator workforce but also demand articulated, interconnected institutional, educator, and learner cultures. The podcast would articulate the three different cultures institutions, educators, and learners to engage in meaningful conversations around ARDTs. The goal was to explore, discuss and debate the purposeful implementation of 21st Century technologies such as metaverses into Institutions of Higher Education while analyzing their positive potential and possible dangers they bring to higher education institutions.
