XR Terra, in partnership with Verizon, is excited to bring this professional development opportunity to educators at no cost.
We invite you to learn about XR (Extended Reality) and how it can fit into our classrooms.
Discover how XR positively impacts education, learn how to create Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) experiences for students, and begin incorporating new technologies into classrooms.
From Summer 2022
XR Foundations for Educators is a hands-on and engaging professional development opportunity designed to give you the confidence to use new technologies to engage your students and prepare them for the future.
Upon completion of the course, educators are issued a certificate indicating 16 contact hours. XR Foundations for Educators can be completed this summer or at your own pace over the school year.
You are not on your own — we provide live support and guidance to all educators in the course. Workshop hours are available on a weekly basis!
XR Terra has been approved as a continuing professional education (CPE) provider for the State of Texas.
XR Foundations for Educators is on the CSTA list of Quality PD Opportunities.
“It took no time at all to be able to play around in the VR environments and create original things. For kids in particular, there is a lot of value in that. This course reassured me that I am capable of doing what I need to do in order to serve my kids.” (Maggie, TX)
“I loved every minute of the program. I loved feeling challenged again, and stumbling and falling. It has been a while since I have felt this excitement” (Rebecca, CA)
“This was very enjoyable and will help me get students interested in learning” (Chris, MA)
Teachers of all content areas can learn to build simple XR experiences for classroom use. No tech background required!
Certificates for contact hours will be awarded.
Educators who complete all 16 hours of the course may apply for continuing ed credits (PDPs) from Boston University.
XR Terra can also customize additional modules for educators with technical backgrounds and provide some support for your middle and high school students.
