What inspired my post about 3D, virtual reality learning was the Pandora Flight of Passage at Disney's Animal Kingdom. I literally teared up riding this because it felt SO real. It made me wonder how this would look like for aspiring students in fields like astronomy. I was just astonished that technology like this existed, and I wondered how this technology can be used to inspire our schools with its next generation of learners. With my focus being in higher education, after re-reading this I wondered how this type of learning could benefit students who might not be able to do their internship in a high risk field (ex. hospital) and how this technology could help bridge that gap. Additionally, how this looks like in virtual meeting spaces. I looked up what more modern technologies exist other than Zoom and found Google is working on Project Starline (video below). The technology is out there, but how fast will our schools adapt to it?
