Virtual Reality in the Classroom: Becky Lane - An Ed Tech Day Featured Session


Contributed by Andrew Hogan

On Thursday, March 21st at 1:10 pm in the Klingenstein Lounge, filmmaker, and 'Immersive Media Explorer' Becky Lane will spearhead a discussion on how Virtual Reality (VR) has been touted as a game-changer in education, and question if it is living up to the hype.  This session explores the state of virtual and augmented reality in 2019 and shows how educators can leverage emerging technologies to improve learning, enhance comprehension, and increase empathy.  Best practices, caveats, current research and how to get started will all be discussed.  

This is one of over 50 sessions that are part of our 29th annual Educational Technology Day at Ithaca College on Thursday, March 21st from 9 am to 3 pm in the Campus Center.  No registration is required for members of the Ithaca College community.  Complete information is available on the Ed Tech Day website:
