As a corporate event photographer, I really enjoy photographing some of the discussions that involve disruptive technologies. It was therefore a particular joy to photograph Fat Gladiator’s EdTech event at CMC Markets at 133 Houndsditch, showcasing VR headset technology and software.
EdTech can be used to accommodate active learning, with more immersive experiences than the traditional setup of teacher reciting information in front of the class.
Education+Technology=EdTech. A good example of those embracing the clear benefits of EdTech are EtonX.
Rob Double from London Broadcast got in touch with a fairly simple brief: document what is happening, and deliver the images fairly soon after the event. I was shooting alongside two videographers that Rob had also organised for the event.
Thanks again to London Broadcast and Fat Gladiator for having me photograph this interesting event. Once the event was coming to an end, I was invited to try out the VR headsets. I must say it was an incredible experience - the sensation of moving within a digital terrain is something I wasn’t quite prepared for! I just wish I was at school in the near future, I think it will be much more interesting than in the 90’s! Here’s a video from CapturedWorld giving a bit more insight.
