Our VR science project aims to prepare future science teacher to be technology innovators in their classrooms and create new learning opportunities to enhance student success with virtual reality. The teacher candidates will explore virtual reality apps on iPad along with HTC Vive to interact with interactive 3D science models in a direct and engaging way. They will be able to create, publish and share interactive presentations and e-books with VR content creator for their lessons. Incorporating iPad and VR equipment in the science education course creates new opportunities for teacher candidates making new connections to the science concept and encourages students to ask more questions and take charge of their learning.
