WEBINAR: Discover Immersive Learning with ClassVR
Immersive learning can bring new engagement with conceptual learning and standards-based instruction. In this webinar we will provide a demo of the ClassVR platform and invite you to explore teaching with Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) using ClassVR headsets and resources.
From students navigating a digital experience inside of the human heart, traveling on a virtual field trip to an erupting volcano, to investigating 3D Models of a DNA structure, AR/VR in the classroom can take many diverse forms to support student learning. This demo will discuss engaging features of ClassVR for any grade level and subject, explore content libraries, and more.
