Augmented and virtual reality are technologies that can directly impact learner experience in the classroom and training via distance methods. It is where the unbelievable becomes the learner's reality. Come see how this technology is being utilized by a local technology company.

Speaker's bio: Demonstrating great talent early on, James Benham began writing code at the age of 11 and by 14 had developed his first application. James is a former member of the Corps of Cadets at Texas A&M University where he graduated with a Master’s degree. James founded JBKnowledge, Inc. in 2001 and serves on A&M faculty as a Lecturer in the Department of Construction Science. In 2012, James was elected to City Council Place 6 of the City of College Station, Texas, where he currently serves as Chairman of the Research Valley Technology Council and is on the board of the Brazos Valley Wide Area Communications System. As CEO of JBKnowledge, Inc. James led his company to become a premier provider of technology solutions with clients across North America, the Caribbean and the Middle East. JBKnowledge, Inc.’s work with Augmented Reality may—one day—be used to improve training content and user experience  that cannot be achieved in the classroom alone or with screen based distance training programs. James’ dynamic speaking style allows him to share his knowledge in a down-to-earth, engaging manner.

This presentation aligns to the Technology Literacy and Learning Technologies foundational competency which indicates that training and development professionals should be able to demonstrate awareness of technologies and use technology effectively.
