Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

1. To connect with VR tools that collaboratively construct architectural models, recreations of historic or natural sites and other spatial renderings. Instructors also have used VR technology to engage students in topics related to literature, history such as Apollo 11 and economics by offering a deeply immersive sense of place and time, whether historic or evolving.
2. To connect with VR tools that provide immersive experiences in STEAM classes and CTE courses such as exploring anatomy, pig dissection, welding, artistic VR drawings.
3. To address educational challenges such as VR funding with sharing Perkins grant solutions.
4. To understand the VIVE, Oculus, and HoloLens platforms as a technology intervention.
5. To employ models of adding VR to the classroom environment such as the hot seat, library multimedia integration, and lab models.
6. To share VR lesson plans tying VR immersive experiences directly to classroom instruction.
7. To share VR research of high levels of success in the classroom from the Global Virtual Reality Research sectors.
