My name is Simeon van Eijl and I’m 32 years old. The project I am currently working on is Immersive Tech in Education.
For me innovation means trying out new ways of doing things that we have done differently in the past. It means that by ways of new methods, technologies or ideas we can change how we are doing things and we do not always know if this is for better or worse.
I’m an avid cook. Have also done some restaurant and catering work in the past. I’m a big American Sports fan. Played American Football in college. I have a degree in Action Learning, which is a method of education that focusses on learning by doing.
I love the Amazon series The Peripheral
I love sports, hanging out with friends, play/make music, building my own bikes and many many more things.
The future of education is immersive. I believe that education will be more focused on skills and competencies needed in the ‘real’ world, rather than obtaining all the theoretical knowledge. Education and technology will become more and more intertwined with each other as technology has the chance to enhance educational experiences.
Everything but especially project management, strategic advice, action learning and general small talk.
VR and AR are making their way into health care, arts, architecture, entertainment, and many more industries. They are also being integrated into higher education to create engaging and interactive learning experiences.
ErasmusX believes that they can simulate real-world environments for training and practice in fields like medicine, architecture, engineering, increasing interdisciplinary learning. As part of this project, we utilise different types of technology, educational tools, and systems.
To create enhanced learning experiences through immersive technologies, which better prepares students for their role within society.
To bring immersive technology to the students so that their learning experiences can be improved.
We worked together with stakeholders in and outside the university to create an immersive tech room.
We developed an educational program that will be housed within the immersive tech room.
