Finding new ways to engage and motivate students became critically important during the pandemic, and teachers and students turned to technology to learn skills, strengthen their communication and leadership capabilities, and create pathways to new educational and career opportunities.

Immersive learning in particular is delivering some of the most promising options for educators and learners.

In a press release, spatial computing company Talespin announced new content and technology alongside an expansion of their social impact acceleration cohort experience with JFFLabs who, in partnership with SAP, is using Talespin’s new content and technology to engage high-school age students in Queens, New York, St. Paul, Minnesota, and rural Louisiana.

The immersive learning experience will help educators build a deeper understanding of how technology empowers young people to develop engagement and employability skills—crucial for careers and in life.

The workforce of the future needs prepared leaders with strong communication skills, who can learn and lead, creating a model for work that’s collaborative, inclusive, and productive. Talespin’s new immersive learning content and desktop streaming platform capabilities align with our mission to lower the barrier to entry for professional development, and to accelerate skill attainment and greater accessibility to advanced technology. We are excited to expand our partnership with Talespin to continue driving social impact in learning and education.
