Caitlin Krause is joining Tom Furness this week in the Virtual World Society's Fireside Chat.

Caitlin is the author of two books on immersive technologies and designing immersive curriculum and experiences. Her first book, Mindful by Design, changed our way of thinking about spatial experiences, and her latest book, Designing Wonder, is revolutionary, changing not just our way of thinking but methodology in educational VR/AR/XR experiences. As a long time educator and XR leader, she now represents the Virtual World Society's development projects, and we're eager to learn more. Join us.

The Virtual World Society brings the world's leaders, innovators, and inventors in immersive technologies to AltspaceVR every other week. Hosted by the Virtual World Society's co-founder, Tom Furness, and the Educators in VR Team, these fireside chats are open discussions on the past, present, and future of the digital landscape.
