Virtual reality isn't just for science class. There are many ways that you can use virtual reality in your classroom.
In the above 3-Minute Classroom Problem Solver video, SimpleK12 trainer Monica Burns explains how to explore the world with Discovery VR.
Virtual Reality can take you to new worlds like never before, immersing you in time, space and story. Here’s a first look at our latest productions in this exhilarating new space — from shark-infested shipwrecks to freeboarding the windiest street in the world — with much more to come. Welcome to Discovery VR. – Discovery VR
The primary intent of this virtual reality content is for it to be experienced with a virtual reality device, such as an Oculus Rift. However, it's unlikely many of us have access to such expensive technology in our classrooms. Which is why it's great that Discovery VR content is also completely accessible via videos on their website.
Stalk prey alongside lions on the great plains, fly with manta rays under the sea, surf on some of the biggest waves you've ever seen. You and your students can xperience this and more with Discovery VR.
