Virtual Reality / Augmented Reality - ONLINE PL 15/9/2021


This course is specifically designed for Primary Teachers who wish to bring STEAM technologies into the classroom. Learn how to turn your lessons into an immersive learning experience where learning comes alive right in front of your eyes. You'll walk away from the workshop confident to implement Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality into your teaching and learning programs.


Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) are two emerging innovative technologies that are now easily accessible in the classroom.

VR refers to the technology where students are completely immersed in an experience that shuts out the physical world. AR refers to adding digital elements to a live view by using the camera on a smartphone.

Virtual Reality / Augmented Reality - ONLINE VIA VIDEO CONFERENCE

During this workshop, participants will:

- discover how these emerging technologies can be easily implemented and aligned to syllabus documents;
- explore a range of VR applications that can be used in the classroom to enhance a variety of units of work;
- explore a range of AR applications already built to implement in a variety of units of work;
- develop VR experiences that align with specific units of work already slated for their classroom; and
develop AR experiences that not only align with units of work in the classroom but can also be used on a whole school level.
