Looking for a way to bring cutting-edge technology into your classroom? Immersive Technology, which includes Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR) was once relegated to the realm of science fiction. Now, however, these technologies are rapidly becoming effective classroom tools. In other words, now is a great time for schools to begin considering the use of Immersive Technology.

This course is intended to get you started on that journey. We will explore topics such as what is immersive technology, how can it enhance the learning experience, and what equipment do I need to create a successful immersive technology experience? By the conclusion of the course, you will be able to acquire and use immersive technology effectively in your classroom.

Instructor
I've been a middle school social studies teacher for 14 years. I can't imagine doing any other job. I love teaching students, and consider myself fortunate to be working in a career that I'm so passionate about. I'm also passionate about helping my fellow teachers do what they love to do better. Two years ago, my school asked me to become the Technology Integrator for classroom instruction (in addition to maintaining my full teaching responsibilities). I jumped at the opportunity. Even though it is often difficult doing both roles well, I'm glad to be in the classroom full time while also acting as a resource for my colleagues. My online courses are the result of my desire to help as many teachers as I can in any way possible.
