Join NYSCATE Corporate Council members zSpace for this important hour-long webinar on how the use of 3D virtual worlds will impact teaching and learning.

We're hearing lots of chatter about what the Metaverse is or will be. The truth is, its definition will continue to evolve. What can we do today? In this webinar, we will feature how several New York schools are already leveraging tenets of a Metaverse to deliver instruction while mastering the academic standards required by the New York Regents examination. Join us to explore how you can engage students in virtual learning through zSpace TODAY!

Join Joe Parlier, Ed.D., Sr. Director, zSpace Education Solutions, Claudine Weiner, MS, ATC, Ward Melville HS Science Teacher, Three Village CSD, and Jaclyn Greenblatt, STEAM Coach, Merrick Free USD, to understand how schools are integrating AR/VR in teaching and learning in New York Schools and identify that VR is a tool linking the 4 C's to academic standards.  Attendees will also learn how to understand how VR supports lab-based courses to allow students to do things that would otherwise be too dangerous, impossible, counterproductive, or too expensive.

Audience:  School and District Leaders (Asst. Supts, Curriculum Directors, Technology Directors, Principals, Assistant Principals), Teachers (K-12)
