As a teacher or school decision-maker, considering VR can be a steep mountain of information and research to climb. We share this newsletter every month to help lessen that burden a bit. Additionally, our goal is to connect you with other teachers, connect our school programs, and enable an environment that will train the next generation of students to create VR.
This last month was very exciting for us as we attended the COSA Principals Conference, concluded our 2nd round of internships in our VEDX Accelerator, and helped schools get their VEDX VR Media Centers operational. Coming up, we are excited to participate in the ED3 DAO Unconference, explore how influencers might impact college recruitment in VR, and continue working with schools to build out a new E-Sports Program for our existing network of schools. See below for more details, and please send this to any other educators out there that might want to join our VEDX Network of Schools.
