VEDX wraps up September with the Council for Opportunity in Education Conference, the GIST (Gaming Istanbul) 2022, and Gatherverse E.U. Summit. Coming up in October is the COSA Principals Conference and the OSU Career Fair. These events are great opportunities to meet more educators and to bring more schools into our partnership network using the VEDX Classroom.
COE Conference – our CEO, Jay Schnoor, just finished a week-long conference with educators from across the nation involved in the Trio Programs. These educators were excited to discuss how the VEDX Classroom will increase recruitment to their programs, help run innovative summer camps, and “meet the student where they are” with VR technology. It is rewarding to have educators be excited about what VR can accomplish for social and emotional learning in young adults. Additionally, the Trio Alpena program is all set up in the Infiniverse; jump in and see it!
FREE Webinar – Virtual Reality in Education
Real insights, case studies, and actionable tips from those teachers building the future of education
Are you a STEM teacher actively looking for ways to engage students and make abstract chemistry more visual?
Join our webinar and Q&A to watch Jay Schnoor (CEO and Co-Founder of VEDX Solutions Inc), Märt Lume (Co-Founder and Product Lead at Futuclass), Katrin Soika (Chemistry teacher at Gustav Adolf Grammar School), and Chri Nitti (Digital Age Coordinator at Hoquiam School District) share their experience teaching with virtual reality.
The Q&A will then be an opportunity to discuss:
What makes VR classes unique compared to physical classroom learning?
How can a school take the first steps into virtual reality?
What are the real-life benefits for students?
What might be the difficulties and risks associated with VR in education?
What does it mean to build a district-wide “Holodeck” and a curriculum for high school students?
What is the VEDX Classroom, and how does it allow teachers to customize the student’s experience and distribute content?
