Creating New Realities with ClassVR

The Bradley County School System recently obtained a cart of ClassVR goggles for use throughout the school system. These devices offer a wealth of opportunities for teachers in any subject and grade level. After listening to this week’s podcast, visit this ClassVR website to find additional information about the goggles and how they can be incorporated into your classroom. When you are ready to reserve the goggles for your class, fill out an Instructional Technology Coach Request Form and a tech coach will reach out to you with more information. Extension of the week: ActivCast Sender ActivCast Sender is an essential extension for both teachers and students who have a Promethean ActivPanel board in their classroom. This extension allows users to quickly and wirelessly mirror their screens to an ActivPanel device. Up to four devices can mirror to an ActivPanel simultaneously and the teacher can zoom in on each of those screens independently.
