Teaching the UEN Course “Mixed Reality In Education” has helped expose many Utah teachers to the benefits of using AR and VR tools in the classroom. One participant, Alison Ence, took the course content to a completely new level. Rather than simply provide Augmented and Virtual Reality resources for her students, she has taught her students how to create their own mixed reality content. Using a variety of tools like CoSpaces, Merge Cubes, Classroom VR, Oculus, and much more, Ms. Ence has provided authentic experiences in computer science to entire class at Green Canyon High School.
Check it out and see what students can create in this short 12 minute UEN PDTV video. And to register for this course keep your eye on uen.org/register. New courses for the summer semesters will be posted on April 1st, 2020.
