CoVince is nominated in the top 10 ICT projects for Education for Computable Awards 2018. We pitched our learning platform for the Computable jury in the Jaarbeurs Utrecht.
The learning conference in the Netherlands. During Next Learning 800 visitors attended and more than 40 sessions were provided, including by CoVince with ‘De (leer)kracht van emotie binnen handbereik’.
April 7th The Crowd event took place in Houten. The Crowd is an innovative knowledge sharing platform specially developed for / by teachers.
‘Vive Focus’ our new addition! And as the first ones in the Netherlands. A standalone VR glasses (resolution 2880 x 1600) without PC and wireless.
Walking around wireless. Learning in VR is becoming more adventurous!
During the Open Day on the 10th of March, future teachers could experience presenting in the virtual world.
Under the direction of filmdirector Christiaan van Halteren (www.christiaanvanhalteren.nl) the first recordings were made last Friday for the CoVince ‘Adventurous Learning’ trailer.
More coming soon….
During the inspiration session ‘Niet meer stampen, maar ACSI’, colleagues from the educational field came together to think about future education.
CoVince shared her vision on the future of work, life and learning (should we still learn at all?) combined with concrete insights / tools to benefit from. Due to the increasing knowledge of the functioning of the brain, combined with the current state of technology, learning opportunities are opened on themes that were previously impossible from books, practical assignments or e-learning. Insights for the application of the basic principles around the so-called brain laws: emotions, visualisations and associations, which leads to better effective and personal learning. Technology that is now available (such as VR / AR, AI, Smart Sensoring, Gamification), makes this easier to achieve. So simple that almost everyone can use it to make learning experiences. These possibilities make it possible to really change the role of the teacher; from a repetitive character to more specialized and personal coaching.
On February 22, the 7th edition of Machine Learning Netherlands took place at KPN. Richard, co-founder of the community, was present to share his vision and knowledge.
A small impression, this video is generated with AI!
The Perfect Storm Conference took place on the 16th of February. During the Campfire Sessions Hogeschool Utrecht and CoVince did multiple sessions.
During the ‘The power of Holograms’ session, participants were taken into the power of visualization. Holographic, augmented and virtual reality visualizations and the application areas were discussed. Participants could experience different forms of visualization. The ‘Presenting in VR’ session gave a picture of an online learning journey in which students, students and teachers in training can practice presenting in a tutorial room, conference room or TV studio. By using virtual reality, a presenter can learn his skills by receiving feedback on non-verbal behavior. Moreover, the online learning environment, which is based on scientifically based educational design principles (Van Ginkel et al., 2015), offers opportunities for learning instruction, exemplary behavior and performing complex tasks. Participants were given insight into effects on learning with virtual reality based on recent research, opportunities this tool has for educational practice and a demonstration in a virtual environment.
