Virtual reality is becoming a reality in San Diego classrooms. A group at the University of California, San Diego are developing prototypes to further engage students in learning. The group took part in a panel discussion Wednesday night on using a virtual reality lesson plan.
The discussion, which took place at the City of San Diego Central Library, is part of the Sally Ride Science STEAM Series program. Educators said with virtual reality, students can read about the Roman Coliseum, and also walk through it. Experts said virtual reality may also be effective in explaining subjects such as engineering, science, and math.
