Virtual reality headsets are an amazing resource for my students. Our school is on a tight budget, and 17% of our town's families sit below the poverty line. For many of these kids, technology and/or cultural experiences are not something these families can ever hope to provide. Seeing a different culture, watching someone different live their life, and experiencing another place is an amazing, life-changing encounter. These VR headsets will help students be immersed in a previously "inaccessible" culture/language, limit distractions, introduce new technology, and inspire wonder. These headsets would be used to take students on cultural, 360-degree tours, experience making dinner in Nepal, witness amazing architectural feats like the Notre Dame Cathedral (before and after the recent devastation), walk across the Great Wall of China, explore the infrastructure designed by the Great Antoni Gaudi, and so, so much more. All of that in an immersive, visual and auditory, distraction-free experience through the Oculus Go headsets. This world is amazing. The opportunity that these headsets could provide these kids might be the only cultural encounter they will get for their entire lives. Help them dream. Help cultivate that wonder.
