I think many educators are aware of Virtual Reality but I think their epic busyness since March 2020 had them possibly miss out on the greatly increased activity in Virtual Reality and the amount of people that met in VR to have meet, collaborate and have fun.
My main objective is to show you the possibilities. What is popular now and what is on the horizon.
Quick Introduction to a Virtual Reality headset and how the headset is being displayed for the audience to be able see and hear what is happening in the headset
Considerations about Virtual Reality. Quickly address overall safety concerns. Public vs Private VR spaces, etc.
How some titles can also be used in a Mixed Reality environment
Diving in! Up to 6 people will be together online and in person to gather in Virtual / Mixed Reality
Planned titles include:
Social Meeting / Gathering Apps
Real Fishing VR
Possibly some pre released titles
Additional titles based on if we are able to show some pre released titles or not
