Joe Merrihew, standing, technology integration specialist at Saranac Lake Middle School, leads students in an exercise with virtual-reality goggles. These VR kits have been a hot thing in the district this year. Students can go to anywhere in the world on their own VR Goggle tour, or they can go on a teacher-led expedition in which the instructor can share a link and all students see the same landscape, museums, city or even another planet. The VR kits travel between schools so everyone gets to enjoy and learn from them.
