Stations are a great option when using VR in your class. VR stations will allow you to designate a safe space for your students to work in and will allow you to create a fixed boundary. Here are some helpful tips for making your VR stations run smoothly:
- When working in VR, make the use of wrist straps mandatory.
- If a student encounters an issue, have them raise their hand and you go to them.
- To get a student's attention while they're working in VR, tap them on the shoulder.
- Make sure there is enough space. We recommend a 6.5" x 6.5" area for each station. You can also check if you have enough room by doing a "helicopter test". Stand in the center of the station, put your arms to your side and raise them to shoulder height, then rotate in a circle to make sure your arms do not touch anything.
Working in VR and on the Web Simultaneously
Inspirit now offers the option to use a simulation in VR and on the Web at the same time. This is a great option when working with larger class sizes and ensuring all students are engaged, or when students have their own technology. Follow these quick and easy steps to get started:
1. Make sure the resource is VR & Web Ready
2. Click the Launch button at the top left of the preview page (the blue button)
3. You'll be taken to a new page with a 4-digit code
4. Have the students working in VR, open the Inspirit app, and enter the 4-digit code to load the Simulation
5. Have the students working on the web go to http://inspiritvr.com/join, and enter the 4-digit code to load the Simulation
6. Once both codes are submitted, your students will be able to walk through the experience at the same time
Charging Best Practices
To get the most out of your headsets, follow these best practices:
- When your device is not charging or in use, power the headset down to maximize the life of the internal battery. To turn off the headset, hold the power button until the indicator light on the front of the headset turns off and the power down sound plays.
- The headset is designed to last around 2-3 hours of continuous use. You should charge your headset when it has about 20-30% battery life remaining, and it takes around 2.5 hours to charge.
- Unplug the device once it is fully charged. Do not leave the headset plugged into the charger, as this can reduce overall battery life. The headset is finished charging when the indicator light on the side of the device changes from red to green.
