What is it about? 
 

In this session, David Winet will be previewing the presentation he is giving officially on Nov 14 at the CATESOL Conference in Anaheim, California http://www.catesol.org/2015_annual_conference.aspx

 

The arrival of both virtual reality headsets and of remotely controlled personal robots presents an interesting step forward for teaching and learning.  This talk will touch on some of the possibilities and hurdles along this path.

does Google Cardboard work with AR triggers like you find on Aurasma or Quiver?
a day ago
this is very promising that education is at the forefront this time
a day ago
  
 
 
the Google Cardboard was very affordable. I think I paid $18. on Amazon. Bought several for grandkids for Christmas :-)
a day ago
the cardboard is good enough to have an idea until the technology is a bit more established :)
a day ago
  
 
 
ah yes Vance! That makes sense. The phone inside Cardboard would have to be the reader.
then point it at the trigger :-) great idea!
a day ago
  
 
 
exactly Vance! perfect entry point! and it's true you can build your own
a day ago
sounds like the cardboard may be affordable, but the connections and devices that constitute affordance add up
a day ago
  
 
 
free google cardboard
for classrooms
a day ago
which is more expensive in remote rural areas
a day ago
I watched something about virtually reality world if I am not mistaken
something to do with FB may be?
where you get an avatar and watch movies with others
a day ago
not to mention often more expensive, especially if you don't institutional affiliation. I don't have that or a cell phone but traded off long distance for wi-fi access. That adds up
a day ago
  
 
 
you have to be a new subscriber to NY Times
to get the Google Cardboard

zynched that is :)
a day ago
  
 
 
exactly! incentive to get subscribers
a day ago
thank you so much for all the information :)
a day ago
