Panel - VR in the Classroom: Practices, Challenges and Opportunities

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Immersive virtual worlds provide an opportunity for students to experience a person, place, or process, in a new and engaging way, making learning come alive! But with this new opportunity comes new challenges: challenges of cost, of equity, of software availability and hardware complexity. How are educators using VR in the classroom today? How are developers approaching creating VR learning material? We'll talk with innovative educators and developers about the state of VR in the classroom, and their visions for the future of education.
