Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality in the Classroom
Virtual reality in the classroom has the potential to remove the physical walls of learning and impact students in ways never before possible. By integrating this tool along with Google Expeditions, we can now transport learners underwater, into space or into the past to engage students in real and profound ways. In addition to this, augmented reality is now transporting the world into the classroom.

In this workshop, we will explain how previously cost prohibitive virtual reality and augmented reality solutions are no longer an obstacle and how one hardware setup accomplish both. Then we will move into how virtual reality can be in every classroom everywhere by aligning it with curriculum. Finally, we will discuss our lessons learned during our augmented reality deployment.

There will be devices available and we will explore both augmented and virtual reality during this session.

Curiosity is the Secret Sauce of an Innovative Leader
“If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got” - Albert Einstein

Innovative leadership is required as classrooms, schools and districts transition to the demands of personalized and digital learning. 
In this session, we’ll explore the Friday Institute’s researched and practiced mental model (Innovative Leader) which is full of mindset abilities that all innovative educators and leaders must be grounded in. We will discuss strategies to help manage the unique stressors that today’s education ask of us, meanwhile immersing you in creative situations to help you in your school. Finally you will leave with a new sense of empowerment about the problems you face. Perhaps you'll leave looking at the problems you see today, as no longer problems at all, but rather challenges that lead to new innovative opportunities tomorrow.
Your students, your peers and perhaps even 'you' need this secret sauce session. Consider yourself grounded!
