This talk explores the transformative potential of combining digital twins and augmented reality (AR) technologies to address the challenges of high training costs and facility management downtime. While these technologies are already extensively used in gaming and marketing, the crucial question is: can they go beyond their current applications, and more importantly, are these technologies ready for broader implementation? Attendees will gain valuable insights from successful case studies and practical strategies for effectively implementing these technologies across diverse industries.

In the rapidly evolving educational landscape, extended reality (XR) is being explored as a frontier for medical training. Dr. Ruby Woodward, drawing from her interdisciplinary research at Cambridge University and hands-on experience with GigXR, will delve into the potential of these technologies, guiding listeners through the intersection of XR and medical education.

She will introduce attendees to HoloScenarios—an innovative application that leverages XR to produce hyperrealistic holographic simulations emulating high-risk acute medical scenarios. Moreover, she will discuss the integration of conversational artificial intelligence (AI) with teaching methods to enhance communication training for healthcare practitioners.

The talk will emphasize the importance of aligning such technological innovations with established medical principles and learning theories. By highlighting insights from collaborative endeavors with experts spanning academia, clinical practice, and technology, the discussion will underscore the multidisciplinary approach essential for guaranteeing the efficacy and integrity of XR in medical education. This presentation will elucidate the symbiosis of XR, AI, medicine, and pedagogy.

Join Dr. Woodward as she outlines the hurdles, breakthroughs, and innovative solutions driving the future of medical education in the XR domain.

Description

The Åland Islands, or Åland, is an autonomous region of Finland. Comprising around 6,700 islands, this Swedish-speaking archipelago is in the Baltic Sea. Many young people live across this region and find connecting to youth services and peer groups a challenge, especially in winter.

Barry Haughey (Founder HoloGen, Dublin Ireland) and Mia Hanstrom (Director of SKUNK youth service, Aland Island) partnered in working together to pilot a wide regional youth project using VR. The idea was to demonstrate that existing support for young people can be delivered using immersive technology, bringing the service to the participant. Historically, some young people have been unable to avail of creative, educational and social activities because they were unable to get to a physical environment, we aimed to demonstrate this was no longer the case.

For this pilot, we used the VR platform, Rec Room to create a private youth club and open a weekly meetup where participants, shared stories, played multiuser games and tournaments and even tried some mindfulness. All of these sessions were hosted by experienced youth workers from the Aland region.

In this Talk, we will hear from 2 young people, Kasper Dreyer and Julia Strand, who were participants in the VR pilot and will share some of their experiences, Mia Hanstrom (Director of SKUNK youth service, Aland Island) and Barry Haughey (Founder of HoloGen) who will discuss the growing potential of immersive technology within rural youth work and education.
