Abstract:   Youth in and out of schools struggle to gain access to quality training, apprenticeships and internships that can help them explore and navigate career pathways. Schools also struggle to find qualified teachers, well-equipped labs and training facilities to provide rich career exploration opportunities to students. In this talk, we will share the results of a collaborative endeavor between SimInsights, an Irvine based edtech company, and College and Career Advantage at Capistrano Unified School District which led to a new VR/AR/AI-powered product for career exploration and workforce training. The session will be 50-50 lecture style and active learning based, and will include live demonstrations of VR and AI technologies. Attendees will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions and share their experiences in a brainstorming session.
