Class VR - Making Virtual Learning a Reality in the Classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

ClassVR is an interactive student learning system that enables teachers to deliver instruction to students in virtual, augmented, and mixed reality environments. The ClassVR system consists of two main components: student virtual reality headsets and the ClassVR Portal. ClassVR Portal is the computer application that allows teachers to discover and deliver content. Class VR Portal has a wide range of pre-prepared content selections ranging from Math to Art History and everything in between. Furthermore, ClassVR portal is the mechanism to monitor progress and deliver individualized content to specific student headsets.

Attendees will be given an overview to how we practically use the system in an urban school setting. Additionally, we will explain how teachers can easily create their own virtual reality experiences for students by using 360 captured images, downloaded images, PDFs, or by the downloading pre-made content from ClassVR Portal. In addition, we will explain how teachers can easily create their own playlist of virtual reality experiences for students. Finally, attendees will be give the opportunity to try the headset, ClassVR Portal, and brainstorm ideas with the presenters on how this program could be effectively implemented in their own school setting. We have seen that using ClassVR raised student engagement and increased knowledge retention in our school.
