New Content Released for VR and AR Resources
As former teachers, we know how difficult it can be to find new and interesting ways of approaching topics or to find ways of integrating new technology and new content to the extent that it positively enriches the learning experience. Because of this, we are regularly adding new lesson ideas to the ClassVR portal to hopefully offer some inspiration for teaching and learning opportunities based on the content available.
Here are the latest offerings hot off the press:
