VR Education with Steve Bambury from Jess Dubai

VR Education with Steve Bambury from Jess Dubai

This week on the Virtual Reality Podcast we have a special guest who currently lives in Dubai and does quite a bit for Virtual Reality and education, mainly focusing on high end virtual reality experiences, like those on the HTC Vive platform. His name is Steve Bambury.  From film maker, to Ipad expert, to top VR Influencer, Steve Bambury helps bring educators from around the world together in Virtual Reality. Steve is the head of digital learning and innovation across the JESS Dubai school system. He is an Apple Distinguished Educator, a Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert, a two time winner of the GESS Award for best use of ICT, winner of the BETT MEA Innovation Award 2018, and was named 2018 Trendsetter in the Edtech Digest Awards. Currently Steve shares his experiences and research on a website called virtualiteach.com. His CPDinVR events bring together educators and experts from across the globe for professional development panel discussions in VR. He has produced numerous iterations of the periodic table of ARVR apps, and is currently curating subject specific playlists on Youtube for VR experiences. But above all, Steve is a nice guy who is always willing to share his love for Virtual Reality, and he was the first person I ever connected with in Virtual Reality when I first put on my HTC Vive and launched into the Engage platform. It is a privilege and honor to bring Steve on this week and to interview him on the the Virtual Reality Podcast.
