Professional Learning

EdTechSA is proud to present the Thinking Spaces series of professional learning events.

The Thinking Spaces series is about considering the spaces in which we learn, be they virtual, physical or simply making space in our minds for new possibilities.

We invite you to attend any of the following events and make space in your diary for learning with us.

Thinking Spaces runs from May until September 2021.

About the Event

Virtual Reality (VR) provides exciting opportunities to enhance learning by providing students access to experiences and places they might not otherwise have. This workshop introduces VR technology and examples of how educators are using VR in classrooms. You will have hands-on experience using VR with our Oculus Quest headsets and consider how VR apps can support or extend learning across the curriculum.

All participants will receive a certificate of attendance on the day.

Light refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP for catering and to secure your place – we have a limited number of places to ensure participants have time to experience VR.
