The Realities of Bringing Virtual Reality (VR) to the Classroom
I wrote a blog for the Allen Distinguished Educators about my school’s experience starting a VR program in a middle school.
I have found quite a few articles lately about how VR can be helpful and life-changing for those that use it. VR can change your behavior and decision-making. VR can ease the pain of hospital patients, including children with sickle-cell disease as well as burn victims and other patients in pain. I think these ideas will really appeal to kids and empower them to think about what they could create in VR that involves the engineering process.
We’re excited for this program to gain traction this year!
