Virtual Reality

Help me give my students a more cutting edge and innovative virtual educational experience. I have a few students who do not have access to reliable technology tools to support them in engaging, participating and completing assignments.

My Students

In the city of Newark, many westward students live below the poverty line. Some can not even wear clean clothes to school and are targets for bullies. Some students are teased and chastised because they were showing up to school in unkempt manners. Some of these students were becoming chronic absentees—missing three to five days of school per month—out of shame. We are a Title I school.

At this time in the school year, students are quarantined under the stay home order in this corona virus and can not go to school until the pandemic is over.

We have began to engage them outside of the classroom with multiple social media platforms such as Zoom, Webx, Screen Castify, Google Docs and Google Meetings. l am able to connect with them in spite of their physical attendance. Many students are improving with their technological skills and teachers are still involving students in positive social change, community service activities and even in virtual field trips.

My Project

Our school set up a student call and check in center for our students to insure that they are able to complete their online assignments. We soon found out that it was not realistic for some senior and special needs students because they did not have access to reliable technology. The virtual reality experience for some urban students are virtual nightmares.

These materials will made a huge difference in determining whether some of my senior and special needs students will be able to be engaged, participate and complete their course work virtually and online platforms such as Zoom, Webx, Screen Castify,Google Classroom and Google Meetings.

Our school district is a Title 1 district and many seniors and special needs students did not get a technological device to take home because there were not enough available. This technology shortage is preventing students from engaging, participating and completing their course work.
