Do you think VR can be combined with Kagan strategies in a High School classroom?

Thanks so much for you inquiry!
With technology being such an important part of education, your question is a great one. It is so cool you are using new technology! Technology is a great tool we can use to enhance our content. Without knowing exactly how you are using virtual reality, here are some ideas to keep in mind when determining where to use structures. When using structures, we start with our content. What is it you want your students to learn from the virtual reality experience perhaps? Then you focus on your function. Is this processing information? Is this for thinking skills? When selecting a structure that aligns with your goal, refer to page 6.24 in the Kagan textbook.
Let me know if you need anything else!
