In December, Highlands Grades K-8 Gifted Education teacher Mrs. Rebecca Mentecky and Highlands Elementary Computer teacher Mr. Andrew Lynch attended a day conference at the North Shore campus of Community College of Allegheny County to present to fellow educators how they are using Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality technology in the classroom.


Both teachers use Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality through Google Expeditions and Merge Cubes to enhance student learning. They received a grant through Remake Learning at the beginning of the school year to buy smart phones, VR viewers, and Merge Cubes.
