Using Google Virtual Reality to facilitate and inspire student learning

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Participants will learn how to take learning to the next level with Google Virtual Reality. Experience virtual reality with Google Cardboard and learn about Google Expedition, and other Google VR apps that can be used with the Google Cardboard viewer.

This hands-on workshop will focus on how to integrate Google Virtual Reality across the school curriculum to enhance student engagement and learning.
Participants will learn how to take their students on inexpensive virtual reality field trips with Google VR.

The instructor will demonstrate how to assemble the DIY Google Cardboard kit, and provide information on how students can create their own Google Cardboard viewers. How could this be made an activity for students?

What is Virtual Reality? What is Google Cardboard? What is the current status of VR in education? How can VR prepare our students to be future-ready? How can I start using VR in my classroom? What are the important content areas in Google Expedition? These and other questions will be addressed in this workshop.

This session is ideal for PK-12 teachers who want to provide new and authentic digital learning experience to their students.
