The headline is misleading - the article is mostly about Google's Cardboard, a $16 set of cardboard goggles you can use with your mobile phone to see 3Dish scenes and videos using specially designed applications. Yes, schools are interested in this. "Thousands of schools in the United States, Australia, Brazil and the United Kingdom are piloting Google Cardboard’s virtual field trip software called Expeditions this year." The article cautions that "Teachers need PD before they can integrate virtual reality, fitness and other programs into lessons. If no funding is available, district tech leaders can ask a group of teacher leaders to collect training and curriculum resources." You can also get more expensive viewers if you want.
