What is the role that VR could potentially play in a classroom?  How can it impact learning, and what really happens when you put this technology into the hands of educators and students?  For the past 3 years, foundry10 has been putting VR setups in schools to see how the technology functions in applied settings.  After a few pilot runs, we now have a cadre of experience teachers who are trying new things with VR in their classrooms.  At this presentation, we will be unveiling what we have learned from over 1,500 students in the US and Canada about their experience with VR, what they want in terms of content for learning, and where the industry could go to better connect with education.
