Make your Classroom a Virtual REALity!
Sunday, March 5 1:30 PM-5:00 PM Location: Capitol North
Abstract: Between economic conditions and safety concerns, field trips are becoming nonexistent in school systems; this is where virtual reality comes in. Not only can you take your students to places around the world, you can also visit impractical destinations such as space and the Great Barrier Reef! Virtual reality can be integrated into any grade level or content area and is much more affordable than you would think. Google Cardboard is an example of a low-cost, virtual reality device which allows students to visit places they have never dreamed of, both real and imaginary. Not only will you be able to experience virtual reality in this workshop, you will also get the chance to create your own virtual reality. You will leave with the tools to transform your classroom into an interactive, innovative learning environment through the integration of virtual reality!
