Future-Proofing: How to Responsibly Create AI, AR and VR Content For Kids

October 28, 2020 @ 8:00 pm EDT



Jumpstart your knowledge about the next areas of content development for kids: immersive experiences that blend real world environments with computer generated virtual objects and characters. A few years ago, Pokemon Go introduced millions of kids to augmented reality games. But what is on the horizon now? How are creative entrepreneurs mixing immersive technology, storytelling, and play to create the next media content for kids? Beyond just idea generation, these new media forms have implications for kids and families connected to privacy, data-collection, child development, and media literacy skill building.
