The iLRN Annual Conference is one of the biggest academic events dedicated to exploring the possibilities and potential of extended reality (XR) technologies such as virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed reality (MR) in education and beyond.
The iLRN2023 conference is an exciting event that brings together a diverse group of researchers, educators, and industry professionals to share their knowledge and ideas, and to discuss the latest developments in the field.
A team from the Metavethics Institute delivered a talk on a new field of research: the Metavethics, the ethics of XR technologies.
The growing use of XR technologies in education, entertainment, and other fields has brought to light the need for ethical considerations to guide their development and use.
As these technologies become increasingly sophisticated and immersive, the ethical implications of their use become more complex and multifaceted.
The Metavethics Institute, a leading research organization focused on the ethical implications of XR technologies, hosted a talk on the ethical implications of XR at the conference.
The talk covered a wide range of topics, including privacy, security, inclusivity, accessibility, and bias, as well as other ethical considerations related to the use of XR technologies.
The speakers have drawn on their extensive experience and expertise in the field to offer insights and recommendations for educators, researchers, and industry professionals looking to develop and use XR technologies in an ethical and responsible way.
Attendees gained a deeper understanding of the ethical challenges posed by XR technologies, as well as practical strategies for addressing these challenges.
In addition to the talk on Metavethics, the iLRN2023 conference will cover a wide range of topics related to XR technologies and education, including pedagogy, computer science, serious games, 3D collaboration, medical and healthcare education, cultural heritage, language learning, and more.
