Please send me information about the XR Foundations: Designer program when it becomes available.
To create a cohort of schools/districts to serve as pioneers in integrating Extended Reality (XR) in K-12 education across multiple disciplines.
To foster a dynamic environment that facilitates innovation, collaboration, and inclusivity in learning through XR, ensuring that students and staff are prepared for the evolving demands of the 21st century.
Scale & Scope:
The initial pilot will start with a minimum of 10 schools/districts in the first semester. Another 10 – 15 schools/districts will be added for the second semester.
Let’s Shape the Future Together!
We invite schools and districts to join us in this pioneering effort and lead the State in embracing immersive technology. Let’s co-create experiences that will change the way students learn and prepare them for tomorrow’s challenges and opportunities.
Technology: Deploy ten managed VR headsets per district, equipped with cutting-edge software tailored to support academic goals.
Content: A comprehensive XR curriculum focused on computer science, design thinking, 21st-century skills, and mental wellness exercises.
Access: The program is designed to ensure all students have access to this advanced learning platform and that it can be scaled further.
Guidance & Mentorship: Each participating school/district will be paired with a dedicated team of industry experts. These professionals will provide:
✓ Subject-specific metrics to gauge and drive progress.
✓ A growth-minded approach, assisting educators every step of the way, ensuring they’re well-equipped to harness the potential of XR.
✓ Technical support on management, content, and deployment.
