Exploring the World of Virtual Reality

November 01, 2017

Exploring the World of Virtual Reality - image001Fifth-graders at Gardiners Avenue Elementary School received a visit from representatives of the education learning platform, zSpace on Oct. 20. Classes entered a zSpace bus parked outside of the school which allowed them to be immersed in a world of virtual and augmented reality.

The platform gives students the opportunity to explore and participate in experimental learning through computers with augmented and virtual reality capabilities. Students had the opportunity to engage in learning applications using 3D glasses. Lisa Grippo, zSpace regional director, helped the students navigate the technology as they used the computer screens to explore different worlds and accomplish tasks.

They worked with their peers to problem solve by moving around with a stylus. At the conclusion of the class session, many students responded to the virtual reality learning experience as "awesome."
