Virtual Reality Workshop for Educators
This 3 hour workshop will introduce teachers to Google Cardboard and educational Virtual Reality apps. The first half will help you learn how to take your students on amazing journeys using Google Expeditions, Google Street View, 360° video on YouTube, and more. We'll travel the world, through space, and beyond!
The second part of the workshop will help you learn how to create your own Virtual Reality content and lessons. We will look at iOS and Android apps that can help you and your students develop interactive 360° content. We will also introduce you to affordable technology like the Ricoh Theta S that allows you to create full HD 360° immersive video. Then, we'll wrap up the workshop with lesson plans ideas and curriculum integration support.
Thinglink VR Workshop for Educators
Exploring virtual reality content is great for the classroom, but getting students involved in the creation of VR content is even more powerful! The Janus Group has partnered with Thinglink because they've created one of the easiest VR creation tools for the classroom. In this 3 hour workshop we'll show you how to create 360° images with free apps and inexpensive cameras. Then we'll introduce you to the Thinglink VR Editor and you'll learn how you and your students can create interactive 360° content on the web. We'll give you a free 2 month subscription to the Thinglink VR tool for this workshop and a discount code for you and your whole school! (Thinglink VR Editor is a paid annual subscription service.)
