Denver7: Aurora Public Schools partners with new program to bring virtual reality to teacher development

Story excerpt:

"Aurora Public Schools is using a unique virtual reality program to help teachers engage with students.

The district is the first in Colorado to partner with Mursion, a virtual reality simulation for teacher development. The program allows teachers to interact with a group of 'digital' students, controlled by a human simulation support person.

'Students constantly need to be engaged and you need to be asking them the right questions and giving them the right answers to keep interest levels up,' said Andrew Salzillo, a science teacher at Mrachek Middle School."
