Did you know that you can take any objects around you and create virtual reality content and lessons based on those objects? Join us on a journey through the Grasslands, Pre-Historic Times, and Native American Pottery, with the Museum of Texas Tech University, currently combining 3D scanning with zSpace augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) to display historical objects in a virtual environment. With AR/VR at the museum, students and visitors are able to examine, interact, and explore these historical objects in a much more realistic, lifelike way, sparking curiosity and boosting their engagement, depth of understanding, and retention.
This educational webinar will allow attendees to:
- Learn how to create virtual models of material objects
- See the impact of AR/VR on museum exhibits, collections, and visitor experiences with a tour of AR/VR at the Museum of Texas Tech University
- Identify unique ways to incorporate AR/VR into social studies classes
