Working with stakeholders from across the ecosystem, we bring evidence-based models and solutions to life.
JFF is helping grow the market for promising technology solutions poised to generate significant social impact for workers and learners. Working with partners including Meta, SAP, Talespin, and others, we explore and showcase the potential of the metaverse including virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), to connect people to opportunities for learning, work, and economic opportunity.
For nearly 40 years, JFF has led the field by designing, scaling, and influencing workforce and education systems.
As part of JFF’s partnership with Meta, we’re excited to share Meta Spark, a series of in-depth training modules designed to prepare learners for careers in augmented reality. These virtual instructor-led lessons provide learners with experience creating augmented reality effects with the Meta Spark Studio, the AR design software that enables creators to build customizable AR experiences to reach viewers using Facebook and Instagram.
The curriculum offers three tiers of training, including an initial contextual grounding module for AR design basics, and subsequent modules that go deeper into design principles and practical applications of the software. The training also comes with study guide materials and practice tests for the Meta Spark professional certification exam that learners can take at the conclusion of the curriculum.
For instructors seeking to incorporate the trainings into their coursework, the AR in a Box educator portal of the curriculum includes educator content for each training module, with accompanying lesson plans, instructor talking points, homework assignments, subsequent exercises, and more. Contact us if you’d like to learn more, or to gain access to the educator portal.
