Show Details

In this workshop, we introduce and explore applications of virtual and augmented reality (VR) learning resources as tools to help students connect with a dataset, incorporate accessible placed-based learning into classrooms, and communicate the nature of science.

Participants will experience and learn about three different application models of virtual and augmented reality in educational settings through examples and participate in a facilitated discussion on the practical application of VR in the classroom.
