What's it all about?

A repeat of our morning session. 

Combined In-person at our Virtual Reality Centre in Newmarket and online via webinar (Limited to a maximum of 45 people in-person)

The VR Voom educational team will host a 90-minute presentation and discussion, for both in-person and online attendees, to introduce our approach for supporting teachers and schools when educating and enabling students to create their own content for Virtual Reality.  Following this, a 1-hour tour and open session to try some of the VR experiences at our Centre (www.vrvoom.co.nz/experiences) will be made available for those attending in-person.

Taught in alignment with the NZ Technology Curriculum with a focus on digital technologies, we offer course materials and support services to enable teachers to teach students how to create their own content for VR experiences and games.  

The target audience for these sessions is primary, intermediate, and secondary school teachers and education management.
