    Scotties Virtual Learning Center Student Ambassador Program

    As we implement Virtual Reality into various classes at BSHS, we are looking for responsible students to become the first members of our Student Ambassador Program. 

    What do our Student Ambassadors do?

    • They are trained to use the Virtual Reality equipment (computer, HTC Vive headset and controllers, classroom and hallway displays)
    • They are familiar with the various VR programs that are available
    • They provide tutorials to teachers and students who come to the Learning Center and assist them in using the VR programs, navigating the headset and controllers
      • They are all comfortable explaining to others how to get around in all of the VR programs
    • They bring new ideas of ways that VR can be implemented into classes at Ballston Spa HS!

    If you have additional questions about the program, please contact Mrs. Bongo in the Secondary Instructional Technology Office (in the library)
