Dream2Play session in colloratorium
The LLITUP research unit commenced the 2018 ‘one-thousand-and one challenge’ series with the first of their Dream2-sessions in the Collaboratorium. These sessions will be scheduled throughout 2018 and will include Dream2Play; Dream2Learn; and Dream2Research. The aim of these sessions are to bring researchers, students and practitioners in technology in Education together in an environment that fosters inter-disciplinary collaboration and innovation. In this process we hope to bring 1001 feet in contact with the LLITUP research unit, to support the development of 1001 skills, to collect 1001 illustrations of innovative teaching with technology, to find and assess 1001 Apps and to print 1001 3D prints.
The Dream2Play open Collaboratorium sessions allow participants to play and experiment with technology in the LLITUP lab, and to dream about the application possibilities in Education. The first session for 2018 focused on virtual reality; augmented reality; and different electronic writing surfaces. The session was unstructured and open to the Faculty of Education.
The first Dream2Research session is planned for 26 February from 15:00 to 17:00. All post graduate students and researchers that work with, or are interested in technology in Education are welcome to attend this session. A short presentation by Prof Marlien Herselman from the CSIR, will be followed by the opportunity for researchers to share their research with each other, in a network-building activity.
