Meaningful Play with Virtual Technology in School

Virtual Reality can be a powerful tool in the classroom and there are lessons to be learned from teachers, developers and researchers who are all working directly with students. Amidst the benefits of VR, there are challenges as well and we’d like to discuss both! Come learn about piloting and implementing VR in schools, the importance of framing those experiences, and how to evaluate whether or not VR is truly bringing value to learners.
