16051 Create Your Own NC Virtual Reality Adventure
With the changes being made to Google Expeditions and apps like Google Poly, how can you continue to place the power of virtual reality into the hands of your students? What if you and your students could create virtual reality projects to experience our state, local and national parks as well as historical sites. Join us to collect digital artifacts of the beautiful places in our state and learn how to use smartphones, iPads and mobile devices, the Streetview app and free websites like to create virtual reality projects that not only foster engagement, critical thinking and creativity, but engender something unique to virtual reality; empathy and a connection to the beauty and history of our state. You will be inspired by your surroundings to create an interactive VR experience, then share it to GoOpen NC.  Student created VR can be used as a choice in any situation where teachers would normally use traditional digital projects like slide presentations, posters, infographics, and brochures.  The end products can be viewed through Google Cardboard, Goggles, or using a simple link.
