Immersive Teaching with Virtual Reality | Masashi Schaefer | TEDxSeattleUniversity

Masashi Schaefer is an engineering and computer science student at Seattle University, with unique perspectives on the potential applications of virtual reality in the field of education. Through his talk, Masashi discusses some of the failings of our current education system and explores new and innovate techniques for our making our systems more equitable and successful. I am a computer engineering and computer science student at Seattle University. I grew up in an inner city public school education system and never really had all of the tech or extra classes you see in some of the schools around here in Seattle. Last summer I became heavily involved in the local virtual reality scene. The way I became involved was through a hackathon centered around blending virtual reality and education. My team and I made an interactive story to help students learn sentence structure and grammar by actually living through and interacting with this world we made in virtual reality. We ended up winning the category for the best blend of virtual reality and learning. I have also been working at a middle school for over a year now, and the one thing that it very apparent is that everyone learns differently and that one of the most challenging aspects of teaching is keeping students engaged. I love teaching and I love technology, I believe that the two go hand in hand. Virtual reality is a way for me to combine those two passions, allowing me to create new avenues of learning to keep students engaged. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
