Immersive learning is changing the way businesses train their people. XR (and the entire spectrum of immersive technologies including VR, AR, MR) significantly increases retention and recall rates compared to traditional methods, with even higher spikes in employee satisfaction and engagement.
But what drives this improvement?
The answer lies in the fundamentals of brain science and the neurology of how we learn. Did you know, for example, that the brain encodes XR experiences as a real-life memory?
XR puts you in the center of experiences—the same point of view you have walking through the physical world—meaning your brain actually remembers virtual experiences as though they were real and translates them into lasting episodic memories. On top of that, XR’s superpowers of presence, immersion, and empathy—as well as its augmented storytelling powers—are prone to instill understanding and change behaviors thanks to the way it builds meaningful episodic memories within viewers.
In the October 16th webinar, The Brain Science Behind VR and Immersive Learning Experiences, Dr. Britt Andreatta, author of Wired to Grow: Harness the Power of Brain Science to Learn and Master Any Skill and former CLO of Lynda.com, will explain the brain science of learning and why immersive learning is so impactful, as well as how to optimize XR training to get the most bang out of your training hours.
Dr. Andreatta will be joined by Rachel Lanham, COO of Pixvana, to outline how businesses are leveraging immersive learning to improve retention and recall. Rachel will also break down the when, why, and how to get started with brain-based immersive learning.
