To help represent the scope of our current work on virtual reality in schools we are providing two resources. First, we are sharing a podcast where Dr. Brown broadly defines the scope of our research. In this podcast he explains how digital tools have to potential to support teachers with culturally relevant science teaching by doing the difficult of “showing’ how the science is relevant. As students are taken to culturally meaningful context they are able to connect the science issues with important local contexts. This helps to turn the science into a tool that students can use to impact their community. Second, we provide a link to one of the manuscripts our team published on this important topic. We invite you to read and expand the work.
