Front Line Worker Training/Learning

Delivering training and learning opportunities through XR technologies is a big opportunity for front line workers (e.g. assembly workers, field technicians, equipment operators). According to industry reports, augmented reality is gaining some of the greatest traction in industry such as military (e.g. simulations, aerospace), medical (e.g. training, medical device operations), and heavy industry/manufacturing (e.g. training, field service). An overarching theme on why XR technology is helpful, particularly, is AR can deliver learning in context of a physical space such as work instructions, operations guidance, or visualization of work alerts such as safety zones.

Define the need/opportunity if it has not been defined yet OR expand on the current definition if you believe that is necessary. Learner-, context-, and/or situation-specific conditions may be relevant here.

Illuminate any concrete examples of the need/opportunity in action.

Align effective pedagogies with XR and immersive learning technology usage that, in tandem, can fulfill the need/opportunity.

Imagine the possibilities for the future of learning, teaching, training, and/or scholarship if XR and immersive learning technologies are applied effectively in service of fulfilling the need/opportunity.

Scan any relevant literature you are aware of that relates to the need/opportunity; what are the most pressing overall themes you observe from the literature? (Share any direct URLs.)

Ask any questions that are critical for addressing in order to fulfill the need/opportunity.
