Discover affordances, design considerations and examples of XR experiences (including AR and VR) in museums that promote equity and inclusion. As we move into a new phase of technology, museums can help increase equitable access to XR technology and create experiences that engage and support all learners. This webinar is part of CAM’s Technology Fellowship program.
