“50 minutes, totally worth it” <—– YESSSSS!
That video was fascinating! I can’t decide if the teacher superpowers were creepy or cool, but overall I am just totally amazed by the whole thing. The teacher gaze part was very interesting but I do see how that can backfire once students realize it is faked. I was also intrigued by the idea of using student body language to determine their understanding of content. It just seems so crazy! I am a little unsure of this new world in the classroom. I can definitely see some benefits but I am a little concerned about the social and educational infrastructure like that one person asked about during the Q & A. Also the “bad” that can come from VR worlds as well. I am pretty mind-blown after watching that video. Are the new generations of teachers going to use VR as naturally as we use white boards?
I can definitely see the benefits of VR in my Earth Science classes. We talk about so much stuff that would be TOTALLY cool to experience first hand using VR. I can also see some benefits in chemistry classes using VR for laboratory activities. I feel like I would need 1349870 planning periods per day instead of just one in order to implement this stuff. I am clueless. They should have VR content specialists that come around to schools and do lessons with us….
