Stephen Adams: Exploring VR 's Impact on Society

Dr. Stephen Adams is a professor and coordinator of the Educational Technology and Media Leadership program in the College of Education. In Professor Adams' "Digital Culture and Society" Fall 2022 course, he developed a virtual reality (VR) learning experience to examine how this technology can impact social change. To give his students a 'real-life" experience of using virtual reality equipment, Professor Adams partnered with the CSULB Innovation Space to bring his students into the lab for hands- and headsets-on practice.

"Students enjoyed the immersive experience of VR and engaging with each other in a different way. Their experience triggered a great discussion on how this type of technology can impact change in society."
