The technology is evolving as quickly as it's being consumed and many students and teachers are reaping the rewards of having a brand new element for engagement. What did Goldman Sach's name as the most disruptive technology in education? Virtual Reality. VR is a gamechanger when it comes to immersive and vivid learning experiences. Simply put, virtual reality opens up excitement and optimizes engagement by taking kids to places they would otherwise not be able to explore. Teaching a biology class? Take students to the bottom of the ocean, 200 feet below the surface, and enable them to examine marine life and oceanic plants as lifelike fish and whales casually swim by. Studying anatomy? Descend directly into the human body and explore the complexities of things like the heart, lungs, muscles, and blood. Or, what about history? Yes, this technology can even immerse kids directly in historic events by taking them back in time and making them believe they're really there. VR is 100 percent immersive as it makes students feel like they're actually experiencing what they see in the viewer. Come learn more about the implications VR has for all levels of education and try the world-class Oculus Rift on the spot. We'll answer your VR questions, show how this technology works, and explain why it's set to enhance education like nothing else we've seen. If you're ready to step into the future, come learn how virtual reality is poised to reshape education. (Presenter(s): Palo Peirce, Director of Sales, N/A, and Rick Fredkin, Eduporium)
