Monks, philologists, and VR
Presentation by Aaron Ralby
Given at TEDxCambridgeUniversity on February 11, 2017
Rather than watering subjects down to make them more accessible, we can combine medieval practices in memory with virtual reality to unlock spatial learning, and empower people everywhere to learn large and complex subjects – such as languages – with ease. Ralby is founder and CEO of Linguisticator, a Cambridge-based company developing online memory and language training programs. He has successfully explored the use of medieval memory techniques and, more recently, spatial memory techniques for children and adults with special educational needs such as dyslexia and autism.
