UNBOUND INNOVATIONS – VIRTUAL REALITY Happened this Summer
The Greenwich Alliance for Education hired AVID students and alumni and funded Unbound Summer VR, a project designed to be a testing platform for Unbound Innovations – a VR Makery at Western Middle School and Alliance Reaching out Grant recipient for 2019-2021 (Alliance investment $74,000). Unbound Summer VR started in mid-July and each day, the six students met virtually with Mr. Lipari and Mrs. Giorlando DeRosa wearing Oculus headsets. They experimented with VR software and collaborated using AltspaceVR a virtual meeting place. One student commented that VR could be the “future of technology in education."
