    The work of four University of Scranton students, along with their professor, was presented at the P4CE Bridges Conference in Cape May, New Jersey, in April, with Dr. Sandra Pesavento, a faculty specialist in educational technology.

    Seniors Jordan Delicato, an early and primary education major from Washington, New Jersey; Kathleen O’Neill, an early and primary education major from Pleasantville, New York; Taylor Septer, a secondary general science education major from Langhorne, Pennsylvania; and Lauren Seitz, an early and primary education from Westwood, New Jersey, presented together at the conference on “Bringing AR and VR to your classroom.”

    In this presentation, the presenters discussed ways to bring Augmented and Virtual Reality into classrooms to transform teachers’ methodology for the digital age. The presenters involved the audience with hands-on activities so they would be able to apply the information they were learning to their own classroom or school district with Google cardboard viewers. Participants experienced Google expeditions and created their own photosphere using the Google street app.

    All of the student presenters were supported by the Student Education Club of The University of Scranton (SECUS).

    SECUS is dedicated to promoting the development of education and the betterment of the University community and to helping its members of all majors become more actively involved with students both on and off campus. The club offers a safe and entertaining environment in which members can collaborate, exchange ideas and extend professional networks. SECUS also fosters the Jesuit ideals of magis, men and women for and with others and cura personalis in each of its members and strives to inspire new generations of exceptional educators.

    The presentation was successful, and the group was invited to present the presentation as a professional development opportunity to Educators across Luzerne County through the Luzerne Intermediate Unit 18.
