There has been a lot of buzz about virtual reality in education but what is it? And what can it do for our students?
This half day 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 and 360 video on YouTube. Attendees will visit Angkor Wat, swim with sharks, go skydiving, fly through outer space and have many more adventures!
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 help you and your students develop 360 pictures. We will also introduce you to affordable technology like the Ricoh Theta S that allows you to create full HD 360 immersive video.
And don't forget...each attendee will take home 5 Google Cardboard headsets to use in their classroom. A $75 value! You'll also get beta access to Thinglink's new VR Editor, which you'll have during and after the workshop!
