Ride the Wave of the Future with VIRTUAL REALITY

The Description

With these funds I will...

help bring amazing new learning activities to our students through the use of virtual reality technology. We are looking to purchase 15 high quality virtual reality headsets. The VR headsets will be able to be used with both iOs and Android-based smartphones. The VR headsets will allow students to view 360-degree photos and videos in virtual reality that will allow them to experience learning in a way they never have before. Through the funding of this project our students will see learning come to life!

At DMS we strive to provide our students with engaging and relevant instructional experiences. Experiences that they can connect to and will lead them toward becoming lifelong learners. Imagine teachers being able to bring their students on virtual field trips to landmarks, cities and other historical sites, as well as traveling into space or even other scientific spaces like the human body.

Back Up Plan

as many VR headsets as we have the funding for.
