Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

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:

Meeting Apps:


Horizon Workrooms

Social Meeting / Gathering Apps

Rec Room

Real Fishing VR

Possibly some pre released titles

Additional titles based on if we are able to show some pre released titles or not

Quick overview of App store to talk about other Multiplayer applications which could be great to meeting / social meeting and togetherness.
