EnLITe - The podcast for Education Leadership & Innovative Teaching by Sean McMinn

Episode notes
In today’s episode, we explore the role of technology in education, with a particular focus on virtual reality (VR) tools. Our guest shares his team's experience designing a virtual lab tool that not only simulates but enhances the lab experience for students, providing real-time feedback and support. We also discuss the use of VR to empower students with design thinking, which became even more crucial during the pandemic. The conversation touches on the potential impact of AI technology, with a belief that it will change education permanently and educators needing to adapt and focus on enhancing critical thinking skills. This leads us to rethinking assessment methods, with a focus on assessing understanding and critical thinking skills.
