iROC: Virtual Reality in the Classroom
iROC - InvestigatingResearch on
Please be with us Thursday, February 2nd when Elizabeth
Cappello, Newburgh School District, presents Virtual
Reality in the Classroom.
Engaging students in the classroom with the latest technology is
an opportunity that allows educators to teach in new and innovative
ways. Using Google Glass in a virtual reality environment, students
are experiencing learning in an incredibly vivid and connected way.
In the Fall semester, Ms. Cappello began using virtual reality as a
way to increase student engagement with a subject some are learning
for the first time--Art History. This presentation will discuss the
successful implementation of Google Class, how Google Glass can be
incorporated in other educational settings, and allow attendees to
try Google Glass firsthand.
Elizabeth Cappello is the Instructional Technology Facilitaror
for Newburgh Enlarged Central School District as well as adjunct
faculty in MSMC's Division of Arts and Letters. She is currently
pursuing a Masters of Fine Arts in New Media and Web Design at
Academy of Art University.
Virtual Reality in the Classroom will take place
February 2nd at 12:45 p.m. in the DC Café of the Dominican Center.
This event has been approved for College Connection FYE credit, but
students at all levels are welcome. The event is free and open to
the public. Light refreshments will be served. We hope to see you
