One of the biggest trends to come out of ISTE 2016 was more viewers and services for virtual reality in education.
Here's a look at some my takeaways from the show: Nearpod, a student engagement platform, has added a virtual reality component to its services. It is a paid service, though some schools and districts have received viewers as a bonus for purchasing the program. The service is available for all platforms, including PCs and mobile devices.
