Steve Grubbs is the Founder of Victory XR, a company that specializes in using Virtual Reality to make compelling learning experiences. Steve joins Mike and begins by telling how he has stayed connected to education and technology in different capacities through his professional life before zeroing in on the work he’s been doing of late. Whether it’s building a VR simulation of the march across the Pettis Bridge in Selma or exploring anatomy, history or astronomy, Steve walks us through various ways in which 3D VR experiences are more emotionally resonant and in many cases more effective than their 2D alternatives.
We talk through the impact of the pandemic before getting Steve’s perspectives on what’s happening now like a recent program launched with Morehouse College to what he sees in the future of learning as other technologies like augmented reality glasses continue to mature. It’s a wide-ranging and creatively inspiring conversation that you won’t want to miss.
