Jaime Donally chats with us about AR and VR in education, how we need to adjust technology to fit our classrooms, and why we need to let our students be partners in the experiences.

Jaime shares why you don’t need to be the most tech savvy person to use tech in your classroom, what the first step to implementing AR/VR is, and why it’s really not about the tech tool at all.

'There's a lot of great stuff coming out, but it doesn't necessarily mean it fits in a classroom.' - @JaimeDonally from episode 96 of #TeachBetterTalk #Podcast #TeachBetter Click To Tweet
