What will I learn?

Virtual Reality is here to stay. Fact. Last year I did a talk on the Bett Arena stage on how we can see VR developing over the next few years in education and the potential is really exciting. From the fantastic ClassVR, a classroom-ready solution, to strapping cardboard kits from Google to your head, the stimulus and new experiences VR can bring to lessons is unprecedented.

In this Learning Trunk I’ll be introducing you to some quick wins with VR. Headsets are the way to go, for sure, however, if you don’t have the budget for dedicated headsets and you are looking for ways to convince your school that they can be a sound investment – i’ll get you going. You’ll find out how to immerse yourself in content using your interactive screen/board and how to access thousands of educational VR and 360 content, in seconds.

This Learning Trunk covers...
