NewsDepth Inbox: Season 49 - Episode #17

We asked you to tell us how you would use virtual reality in school:

Marija, Huntington Elementary: "I would use virtual reality to go through small assignments such as the Underground Railroad or The Mayans to see their lives and the way they lived. I would also use virtual reality to see what space looks like in science. That is what I would use virtual reality for in school."

Jordyn, Laurel School: "I would use virtual reality in school for doing math facts. I would do that because I am better at seeing math facts then doing them in my head. I would also use virtual reality in school for reading because I would not have to turn pages or anything. That's how I would use virtual reality in school."

Brogan, Orchard Hill Intermediate: "I would use VR for seeing what it looked like back in time. It would be really cool and fun."

Jordin, Olmsted Falls Intermediate: "If I was using virtual reality in school I would do it in science because you do experiments without making a mess or using chemicals. I'd also us VR in social studies because you can take a tour to historic places in VR instead of actually going there. Also, I'd do for social studies because in VR you can meet the presidents virtually."

Jaslynn, Woodlands Intermediate School: "I feel like you could use virtual reality in school for helping people learn different things if people are behind in class or have trouble comprehending the things everybody else is learning. For instance, if people are learning long division, and if there are special needs kids in class, they could learn something different like multiplication."

Ellye , Meadowlawn Elementary: "I think it would be cool to have VR at my school so I can get better at my facts. It would also be cool to have VR so I can know how to spell a word. The final thing is it would be cool to have VR so I could be a tribe with my classmates, and the other students could be either allies or the enemy. Wow I really want VR now at my school"
