Crescent Girls School today launched the first Mixed Reality (MR) Immersive Learning Space in a Singapore school at the 6th Digital Age Learning Conference. The space will be used to supplement class work with immersive and collaborative experiential learning using the Microsoft HoloLens.
Over the last six months, the school in partnership with Serl.io, a MR start-up, embarked on a development project to bring MR technology into the school. With educators continuously grappling with student engagement, the team set out to evaluate the use of the technology in effective team-based and game-based learning strategies to enhance learning engagement and outcomes.
“We are really excited to see the students getting into it and engaging amongst themselves when they go through the collaborative MR experience. Beyond content, we are also pleased to be able to offer our management system for teachers to effectively run and manage class-scale MR sessions.“ says Terence Loo, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Serl.io.
CGS and Serl.io are planning to produce more content even as the team at Serl.io develops AI capabilities on their MR platform to further transform learning that are not just experiential but contextual as well.
