Update: Oculus Rift

In Episode 3, Rob and I talked about a virtual reality tech called the Oculus Rift during our KWL segment.  Specifically, we were interested in the potential to use it for virtual field trips… well check out this grandmother who’s virtually taken to Tuscany by her grandson.

Check out the video below to see what she was actually looking at. You’ll have to imagine what it would look like with a pair of Oculus Rift goggles on – unless you already have a pair. If that’s the case, contact us now!

Episode 3: All about games… well mostly about games

Rob’s back from some well deserved R&R and a visit to the PAX East games conference.  We cover a web app that helps you gamify classroom management, discuss game trends and tech that we hope will impact education, speculate on the latest attempt at consumer VR, and lots more.
