ImmersED 2020 Update

Fueled By

To My ImmersED Family,


Thank you all for your willingness to attend ImmersED 2020.  


I appreciate and value each and every one of you for all that you’ve done to support us as ImmersED strives to unite innovators, build bridges, and provoke imagination between content creators and educators. 


With all the uncertainty in the world today, you may be wondering whether the ImmersED Summit, May 2nd, will continue as planned.  It was my hope to wait out the next few weeks to see if theory comes to practice with Covid-19, but sadly I share, time has come to postpone ImmersED 2020. Please understand that our primary concern is for the safety and wellbeing of all.  


As a teacher I understand the impact COVID-19 is having on my  K-12/XR community, face-to-face instruction is suspended, online instruction is gaining momentum,  and working remotely is commonplace. As this worldly disruption is creating evolutionary changes to the landscape of XR through necessity, I look to you thought-leaders for ideas on how to move forward. I challenge you to hear us  . . . focus your energies in the development of viable XR experiences to promote learning, now is the time that you are needed most.


We are a strong passionate group that understands that in-person, face-to-face collaboration, and providing the AH-HA moments are how we define ourselves.  So, where does this leave the ImmersED Summit?  As I see it, ImmersED is on hiatus for the next few months,  we will announce a new date as soon as possible, so please stay tuned. We will be contacting all current attendees shortly. As we regroup and build momentum towards our next summit, please be safe!
