Washington, D.C. – XRA’s Senior Vice President of Research and Best Practices, Stephanie Montgomery, recently participated on HTC’s “Practicality of VR: Career Exploration for the Classroom” podcast hosted by Bob Cooney, alongside Matthew Chaussee, CEO of Be More Colorful. Together, they explored the transformative impact of XR technologies in classrooms, focusing on how developers, educators, and stakeholders can leverage its potential to enhance learning experiences. Montgomery, Chaussee, and Cooney discussed the challenges and opportunities associated with XR adoption, the exciting benefits it offers, as well as strategies to ensure accessibility and equity for all students.
Montgomery shared industry insights, discussed how XR enables educators to break barriers in the classroom, and provided examples of how XR is being used by educators to foster accessibility and equity for students with limited resources to explore inaccessible careers.
“I am super excited to see the transformative power of XR; and we have to do it in a way that we’re thoughtful, responsible, bring everyone with us and are transparent in what’s happening. It’s going to be amazing to look back in 10 years and see where we were today,” said Stephanie Montgomery, Senior Vice President of Research & Best Practices, XR Association.
