Standing Together, but Standing Alone With Virtual Reality!

Help me give my students the Oculus Go Standalone Virtual Reality Headsets - 32GB

My Students

My students are 17 wonderful special needs scholars ranging from 4th through 5th grade. Many of our students are economically disadvantaged. My students are appreciative and eager to learn new ideas and objectives because they love a challenge.

Each child in my classroom have different learning styles, but they all love technology!

We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, collaborative group work, and provide learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met. They enjoy having many resources to access individualized explicit instruction in math, science and reading language arts.

My Project

My project will allow students to explore how Virtual Reality can be integrated into every subject area and curriculum; also experience different careers at first hand. Personal Viewing: The littlest, big screen. Crystal clear optics and state-of-the-art 3D graphics make their headset feel more like a personal theater

Viewing with peers: Watching with peers.

Meet up in VR with friends and fans from around the world to catch live sports, concerts, or just their favorite education experience.

Portable & Easy to use: Ready when you are. Experience portable, all-in-one VR. That means no PC, phone, wires or hassles

Controller: Effortless control. Whether it's navigating to their favorite shows or to a far-off land, the intuitive controller makes getting there a cinch.

Built-In Audio: Surrounded by sound. Spatial audio drivers are built right into the headset, providing dramatic, immersive sound without the need for bulky or tangled headphones. Oculus Go also features a 3.5 mm audio jack. Students will be able to share their world with others by creating their own VR content. Virtual Reality will promote Curiosity and Wonder!
