District: No. 10. (Arrow Lakes)
This project’s aim is to explore the integration of Virtual Reality and Place-Conscious learning. Teachers and students from three communities (Nakusp, Edgewood and New Denver) are developing new ways to collaborate in developing this intriguing project that seeks to lay the groundwork for future education in the region that is both community-based and locally generative in the educational use of new technologies (as “forces of good” to “inspire our learners to create, and not just consume VR/AR content”).
Here is this project’s 2018-2019 final report (opens in new tab).
