Now more than ever students and adults have access to extremely powerful computing devices. Tablets, smart phones, smart watches, computers and (upcoming) smart glasses offer intelligent user experiences that are only getting more profound. The natural world around us is becoming more computer-generated as tech companies invest millions of dollars into new technologies that can manipulate or even completely replace three-dimensional landscapes for users to interact with. In this course, Exploring Virtual Worlds, you will learn how to leverage both virtual and augmented reality technology to support student learning in the classroom. Have you ever wanted to visit the top of Mount Everest or take a dive to the bottom of the ocean floor? How about take a trip through the jungle or explore a volcanic eruption? Not only are these trips possible through VR and AR technology without leaving your classroom, they can be presented in an authentic way that promotes observation and discovery while following standards aligned to your current curriculum. So, what are you waiting for?! Let's explore! This offering is aligned to the ISTE Standards and to the CPS Framework for Teaching Components: 1d, 3c, 3d and 3e.
