Project Voyage is about exploring Collaborative VR in a classroom setting. Our goal is to show that collaboration in VR could be a powerful medium for education. We would be using Mobile VR as our platform, specifically, the Google Daydream and Pixel. We would be working closely with the teachers of Cornell School for our project. We would like to create prototypes to explore possible pedagogically meaningful interactions and answer problems that could arise with using VR in a classroom. These prototypes would all be geared towards a particular educational topic. Taking our learnings from these prototypes, we would be building an experience for Grade 7 students and deploy in Cornell School by the end of the semester.
