Something really fun just happened! Norrköping has purchased two sets of VR-equipment and I have been entrusted to put them on the students! This will be so much fun!
VR is really the new black! Everything is suddenly possible and it is extremely fun to enter different worlds with different sceneries. These days there is no need to just look at the Mona Lisa in a book, the students can go to the Louvre, step through the door and walk around at their own pace.
For students who have their heart set on a specific careers the adventure can be specified to the students interest. They can see school environments, large hospitals or whatever they want. Either all students can see the same world or they can visit different worlds and describe them to each other.
The classroom no longer stops at the walls, we can enter at different places as easily as one shows a still image on the projector. Supplemented with sound, the experience becomes more intense and more memorable!
At the moment I do not know how to solve every single detail in it, there are some question marks such as which systems are free and how to log in to different systems. I still think we can't wait to start just because everything is not in place. I have until October to straighten out as many question marks as possible and sometimes you have to dare to try. Dare to face the students and admit that "I have never done this before and you have to help me. We have to find a way to work together, you are pioneers like me!" Then the experience becomes something you share with your students for more reasons than one and that makes it a wow-experience!
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
