Virtual Reality as an Educational Tool (A Reportage Sketch)

I went to a virtual reality event held at the Oakland Museum garden featuring not only a virtual reality narrative but also live music, and speakers. I had never worn that type of headset before and was pretty flabbergasted at what I saw and felt. It truly is a 3-d experience!
At the event you could also engage with avatars that were programmed with AI (artificial intelligence.) The avatars were students in a classroom setting. They were having a disagreement and it was your job to facilitate a discussion. Simply amazing. I definitely can see this being of value in an educational setting but I still find it kind of spooky too. --Vivian Aldridge
