Cardboard Days in STUDIO
“You open your eyes, and you’re standing in the middle of the street in Tokyo. Click: You’re on 7th Avenue, in New York City. Click, click, click, and you’re traveling around the world at warp speed.

CTET STUDIO is experimenting with a low-cost virtual reality platform that we recently learned about at the spring ETUG (Educational Technology Users Group) Conference. We are having fun experimenting with it - learning how it works, exploring the photospheres created by others and creating some of our own.

Bring your smartphone – and if you want to be really prepared, install the following apps before you come to STUDIO:
Can’t make it at on a Wednesday at that time? No worries! Drop in when you can and someone will point you to the information and instructions, or visit the Google Cardboard site to learn how to get the viewer and download photosphere apps.
