Virtual Reality in the Classroom
WhereOrion Education & Training 13939 Diagonal Rd. Clearwater, KS. 67026
Imagine taking your students on a virtual field trip to the Amazon, the moon, the Gutenberg Museum, or the city of Verona from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Since the introduction of Google Cardboard in 2014, educators across the globe imagined the exciting classroom possibilities of offering an inexpensive virtual reality (VR) experience to their students. Google Cardboard turns a smartphone into a 360 degree VR experience! Using Google Street View, Google Expeditions, or a variety of educationally-based virtual reality apps you can increase student engagement across the curriculum. Join us and journey around the world within the walls of the classroom. "Take your students to places a school bus can't go."
