Turning Student Artwork into Virtual Reality 360 Image

Here we go again. Craig is writing another blog post about virtual reality. I promise that we do other things at the high school that I work at. However, we continue to try new things pertaining to virtual reality.

Last November, I attended a session that Kathy Schrock was giving. It had to do with taking 360 pictures with mobile devices. This session, like others that I have attended from Kathy, gave me a new idea that I hadn't thought of before. She had shared that there was a way to take artwork from students and turn it into a 360 image. I thought that this was brilliant. The website that she shared was Panoform.

Virtual & Augmented Reality Station Work

Happy New Year everyone! Seems hard to believe that I have started my journey with this blog three years ago. This blog has been one of those places that I have been able to reflect on things that have been accomplished in my school as well as share some of my favorite tips and tricks. My only hope is that I have more time to share more of my thoughts throughout this year.

One blog post that I have been meaning to write about for a couple of months now is how teachers at Bedford High School are implementing virtual and augmented reality in the classroom, beyond using Google Expeditions. This has been done through the use of station work. Mrs. Pingree & Mrs. Nardion (science), Mr. Guerard (Wellness) and Mrs. Sarsfield & Mrs. Orrego & Ms. Close (Spanish II) have all followed this type of model. One specific example that I want to share is what Mrs. Pingree and Mr. Guerard did.
