Learn how to use virtual reality and 360 media in the science classroom. This is a hands-on session where each participant will gain a better understanding of the application of VR as a learning tool, as well as practical examples of how to implement on a classroom basis using a range of technologies and free content.

After a background briefing on learning theory, participants will work through a series of lesson activities using VR and 360 media in different ways: front of class projection, viewing on tablets or smartphones and using VR headsets. The lesson activities are from Encounter Edu’s free Coral Oceans resources produced in association with ASE.
