Virtual Reality (VR) is like no resource we have ever used before. It is entirely immersive and incredibly engaging. For schools, this technology offers some amazing possibilities for teaching and learning.


During this presentation Chelsea will:

  • Share her experience of introducing VR into two secondary schools;
  • Describe several examples of the practical application of VR in a class setting;
  • Present a sample lesson plan that is linked to the Australian National Curriculum, and includes a small formative assessment;
  • Frame VR in the context of learning research and theory;
  • Touch on some important considerations regarding how to meaningfully link this new resource with practice and pedagogy.

Chelsea’s hope is that you will come away from this presentation inspired to try new technological mediums. She also hopes that the knowledge you gain through this presentation will empower you to argue the case for VR in your own school.


VR is an incredibly powerful and versatile resource, and it is definitely time to get excited!


Outcomes for attendee:

  • Understand what VR is and how it relates to school education;
  • Describe several examples of how VR can be used in practice, in a classroom setting;
  • Argue the case for VR being brought into a school, by linking the potential benefits of the resource with current learning theory, research, and pedagogy.
