14875 Focus Friday: Augmented, Virtual, and Mixed Reality in Schools

Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) have become hot topics in schools. With the use of Google Expeditions, students can travel to almost anywhere in the world within seconds. Science and social studies standards then come to life because students are immersed in different situations, locations, and cultures.  Students are more engaged and exhibit deeper thinking as they ask complicated questions about what they are experiencing. Using an AR app, students can transpose virtual objects into the real world, allowing them to “hold” objects like a human heart while learning about the different parts and functions.  Although seeing through VR goggles and holding AR objects are amazing opportunities, many students are ready for the next step: creation. Come learn how to not only integrate VR and AR into your standards but also how to move your students to the next step of creating their own Mixed Reality (MR). 

The Focus Friday programs offer teachers the opportunity to look into a variety of topics while at NCCAT,  a recognized national leader in professional development programming for teachers, for a day. Come be a part of NCCAT’s daylong professional development session. Breakfast and lunch is included. A limited number of rooms are available if you need to arrive the night before. The programs will be at the NCCAT Cullowhee campus from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
