Virtual Reality (VR) offers a new world for contemporary science teachers. As the number of students with smart phones increases over the years educators will have access to devices that can provide amazing intellectual resources for students
Virtual reality represents a new direction in technological advancements for educational research. While education has been slow to adopt new technology, educational technology companies have been slow to collaborate with teachers to produce pedagogically valuable resources. This project explores house science educators and science researchers collaborate to produce virtual reality instructional materials for the modern science students. What this means Is that educators can think critically about how technology can become a useful tool for building culturally relevant virtual reality instructional materials. At the 2019 conference for the National Association of researchers of science teaching, we presented a number of new research studies. The studies are here for you to review and share broadly.
In this new era of interactive technology, scholars have to consider how using technology with a lens on race and culture can improve students learning. If the vast majority of U.S. teachers do not share the racial identity of their students, how can technology bridge the cultural gap. Check out a brief overview of our…
