Wed Nov 29 2017 (01:19:49)

Marc is joined by designer / developer and *renowned technoculturalist*, Joe Saavedra of Planeta, a NY-based R&D company working across digital platforms. And Chelien Brown, Learning Design Coordinator at Mouse, and NY-based STEM educator, content creator, and youth developer. From Chelien: how does he experiment with VR as a creative tool for learners in middle and high school? Learn about Joe's pathway from Alto Sax to leading large-scale hardware and software projects in VR and beyond. Together, leveraging Joe's expertise, the group winds up on a shopping spree, to discover the cost of one full VR setup that a school or learning org might incorporate into their space. Are we closer to the moment when "VR for learning" is accessible for all?
