Virtual Reality in Education
What happens when you introduce virtual reality (VR) into schools? Mike McArdle, co-founder of The Virtual Reality Learning Experience (http://www.thevrle.com/), will describe VRLE's experiences over the last year and a half as they have taken VR into local schools to help students understand the scale of outer space. As part of the process, VRLE has developed a better understanding of how kids, teachers, and administrators react to VR and what other kinds of content might be useful. During the second half of this event, we'll have an open discussion about how the lessons VRLE has learned can be applied in higher education as we continue to examine the potential for VR in teaching and learning at Duke.
