Lyfta supports the Teaching Citizenship Conference
We are pleased to announce Lyfta, the award-winning immersive learning platform for teachers, will be supporting the Teaching Citizenship Conference this year. Encapsulating the event theme of ‘future-proofing your curriculum’, Lyfta will showcase the use of interactive 360° technology to bring human stories to life in the classroom.
We will welcome Lyfta’s Co-founder and CEO, Serdar Ferit, as a guest speaker, to deliver a talk on ‘Nurturing children for our changing world: the power of immersive human stories’. Serdar’s session will explore how diverse immersive stories from around the world provide a powerful and captivating way for schools to nurture cultural capital, character education and social emotional competence, and teach about vital global issues such as sustainability and climate change.
We look forward to hearing more about the academic research behind the platform, and how this can have an impact on your curriculum planning.
