The education team at Georgia Public Broadcasting is excited to announce the launch of our Mobile Virtual Reality (VR) Lab, an initiative made possible by the Imlay Foundation. The Mobile VR Lab is equipped with 48 Oculus Go virtual reality headsets that transport students to places and environments without leaving the classroom.
Through this initiative, GPB’s education outreach specialists provide free on-site demonstration lessons with students and professional development sessions to teachers across the state of Georgia. No previous knowledge of virtual reality or classroom equipment is required! GPB Education staff works closely with schools and teachers in any content area to develop and implement an onsite standards-aligned lesson that supports learning objectives integrating high-quality VR content. With our class set of VR headsets, each student can experience virtual reality firsthand.
