#15 Virtual Reality and the Educational Experience

The story of educational technology can be told through the history of various technological “tipping points” — times when a conceptual technology becomes real due to the development of new hardware. These are points in time when science fiction turns into reality. Scott and I believe that virtual reality’s “tipping point” is near. In this episode of URTechSavvy, we explore the new hardware and discuss their potential as an effective educational tool.
