What Would You Like Your Students to Explore via Virtual Reality?

Curiosity Rover Explores Mars

Would you like your students to explore Mars, visit historic places, or dive deep into the ocean? We have received many requests from educators with great ideas for interactive VR lessons, so we decided to invest in producing ready-made lessons ourselves. This means we will be shooting and licensing 360 images and videos for creating immersive learning experiences that will help students travel to places they can’t explore in the real world.

These lessons will soon be available via a paid app that will cost under $5, and they will also be included in our paid school and district licenses. Later in the year, we are planning to open the app for educators who want to create and sell virtual reality lessons themselves using ThingLink’s new VR editor.

Share your wishlist for Thinglink VR stories for education

Our goal is to provide schools and families with useful interactive VR lessons that are aligned to standards and fit within the existing curriculum. We are starting with Next Generation Science Standards because we believe this is rich content that will be quite useful.  But, we’d also love to hear your spontaneous ideas about where you would like to take your class via virtual reality? Which places would you like to visit? What would you like to experience? Please share your ideas for VR stories by completing this quick form.
