SWWC has made virtual reality possible through a grant from Minnesota Telemedia. SWWC received two sets of Google Expeditions VR Kits for use by K-12 schools that are a member of the SWWC. Each kit contains a teacher device, 30 student devices, 30 viewers, and a router that allows the student devices to “travel” to the classroom destination. The student devices
do not need Internet
and will not be connected to your school’s wireless network. The kits are completely self-contained and very easy to share amongst multiple classrooms in a school and even multiple schools in a district. Schools will be able to check-out and borrow the kits for use in their schools free of charge, with the exception of shipping costs when necessary. Schools can reserve a kit and use it for 1 week.
