How Holographic Classrooms Will Improve Learning and Development in the Future
It’s already written in the stars with shows like Star Wars, Star Trek and many other childhood shows for Generation X that holograms are a reality.
Whatever we thought was “futuristic” back then, seems to be making its way around to our world today. Self-driving cars, face recognition, and even video calling used to be the “wow” factor. The “it” thing for our generation when we were younger. And now, here we are. Creating at a crazy-fast rate things we didn’t know we’d see in our lifetime.
And if the movie “Back to the Future” is any indication, we’re actually a good 10 years behind. By the early 2000s, we should’ve had flying cars. But hey, we’re only human.
Let’s Talk About Holograms
Since we’re amazing at making childhood dreams come true, it isn’t unfounded to believe that holograms are making their debut in education soon enough. For us at Miranda Park Learning, we’ve been obsessing over how virtual reality is coming into L&D. But our biggest obsession has been what we’re calling “Holographic Learning.”
With the advent of 2020, companies saw a boom in online learning. We at Miranda Park Learning are fans of Adobe Captivate for creating eLearning modules.
But we know that when something arrives at the critical masses for education, it’s likely beginning its descent. While we know eLearning will be around a while, we’re already making way for VR and Holographic Learning.
What’s eLearning Missing?
The one thing we will continue to say eLearning is missing, is engagement. Not because the teachers aren’t good and the students aren’t willing to learn, but because we have yet to capture the essence of the student-teacher relationship through a computer. Here’s how a holographic classroom can help.
How a Holographic Classroom Can Help
When using holographic avatars, first and foremost, our biggest aim is that teachers and students don’t lose touch. The teacher and student will be present in 3D or 4D. With holograms instead of a flat screen, you can potentially show your students your movements at 360° and live. Yes, live.
When the tech is finally here, if you’re a yoga teacher who needs to come up to your student’s hologram to adjust their posture, you’ll be able to. Something you’re unable to do on a flat screen now.
Are We Dreaming?
You bet. As this technology is refined, we patiently wait. Funding is of the essence for us, so if you know anyone who wants to hop on this bus, by all means, we’d love the intro.
In the meantime, at Miranda Park Learning, we’re innovating in our minds the precursor to the future of this industry in learning.
