CWS EMBRACES VIRTUAL REAITY
Staff and students in History and Geography classes have been a part of a pilot project in bringing Virtual Reality to the classroom. Virtual Reality allows students to visit places without ever leaving Orillia Secondary School. Students have participate in traveling to Vimy Ridge, exploring a Syrian Refugee camp, create their own VR tours, and become their own travel agents. VR brings to life our world and we are excited to be promoting this approach to learning in our classrooms.
