The purpose of this session is to show the everyday teacher how easy it is for VR/AR to be a reality in their classroom without spending a lot of money or being super techie. I will share lesson examples, pictures and video of students during VR/AR sessions, data from surveys, and student video on their thoughts about VR in the classroom. Participants will also get playtime to experience VR/AR for themselves.
The objective of this session is for participants to be able to design lessons that connect students to the content, engage students with immersive experiences, and manage technologies needed for VR/AR in the classroom.
