Experiential Learning.  It’s what we all aspire to bring to our students.  Why read or watch a video about something when you can take your students there and let them see it for themselves? But if you can’t go and experience something, Virtual Reality technology might be the next best thing.  On today’s podcast we explore and play with VR Tech that you can use in your classroom.
