After working with a donor on virtual reality (VR) for the past two summers, Dallas Afterschool has expanded our VR library. As a result, we are offering a new benefit to
certified program partners. VR kits are now available to checkout for up to two weeks at a time. Our team provides training on the use and care of VR kits as well as creative ways to integrate them into curriculum.
This exciting new resource encourages creativity in afterschool professionals while reinforcing literacy, history and science lessons for students. VR helps break down barriers and creates an experiential learning environment for children that fosters greater exploration in a variety of topics. Instead of simply reading about ancient civilizations and famous landmarks,
students can now visit them. They can also
tour college campuses without leaving the classroom!
Dallas Afterschool is pleased to offer this new benefit to our certified partners, all of which have demonstrated a commitment to high quality programming. This new tool will enhance the afterschool environment while giving students access to new technology that will be vital for their future education and careers.
