Why just read about ancient Rome when you can walk the cobbled streets as if you were really there? That's the promise of virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality in today's classrooms.

While the idea of strapping on goggles to virtually visit the Colosseum or go inside a molecule sounds like the stuff of science fiction, the technology to do just that is becoming more popular and available every day. While there are plenty of obstacles — from cost to teacher training — that are impeding the growth of virtual reality as an educational tool, it offers considerable benefits. Not only can it boost visual and technology literacy, but it also improves students' attention and engagement.

To explore how this technology has the possibility of transforming K-12 education, a panel of educators and technologists will discuss both the promise and peril of using virtual reality in the classroom.
