Quinn Longhurst

Librarian
Seattle Public Schools

Being a school librarian is Quinn’s dream come true. He gets to combine his passions for great books and emerging technologies with education. He’s an advocate for literacy, champion of equity, and strongly supports the maker movement. Quinn started dabbling in Virtual Reality in 2014 when he first got his hands on a cardboard VR headset. The result? An instant epiphany when he considered the possibilities of classroom application. Now, he gets to immerse students in virtual worlds and relive the amazement and engagement. Moving from cardboard to the latest immersive headsets, he often wonders with excitement where VR will lead us next.
