Making Virtual Reality (VR) a Reality in Your Classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Imagine spending an afternoon in the Roman Colosseum, floating around a Caribbean reef, or even exploring the structure of an atom from the inside--all without ever leaving the comfort of your classroom! Through the power of Virtual Reality (VR), learn how to transport your students to different times and places, creating engaging, unforgettable experiences that transform learning. We’ll show you the tools and apps you can use to experience pre-made VR worlds, and you’ll also learn how to create your own with your students, unleashing their understanding and creativity. This hands-on session will allow you to experience VR for yourself and help you understand how to make it a reality in your classroom.
