The Immersive Education Initiative today announced that Google Virtual Reality (VR) will be featured at IMMERSION 2015 in Paris this September. The international event will host a series of talks, exhibits, demonstrations, and hands-on workshops to give attendees an in-depth overview of Google "Cardboard VR" technology, along with an understanding of how VR is being used today in a wide variety of Immersive Education clubs, camps and classes.
Attendees will have the opportunity to create their very own Google VR headset as they explore the fundamentals of Virtual Reality. Teachers and school administrators will also be provided with details on how they can use VR to engage students in-and out-of the classroom.
Smithsonian, Disney, and United States Department of the Interior (DOI) National Parks Service keynotes and workshops will compliment Google VR sessions at IMMERSION 2015. For more information visit http://summit.ImmersiveEducation.org
