Join Heather and Rita for a discussion on how to incorporate Floreo Virtual Reality experiences to teach and reinforce competencies in social interactions, life skills and self-regulation. Imagine you could observe and guide your students on positive peer social interactions in a school cafeteria — or transport your students directly to a city street and coach them on how to interact with police officers. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a calming space, such as an aquarium, where a student could ‘chill out’ without leaving the classroom?

The webinar includes:
-How Floreo works (what you will need)
-An explanation of the (ever-expanding) Content library
-How to set up Floreo VR as a group experience
-A demonstration of one of the lessons
-How to use the experience to work on target behaviors that are beyond the stated objectives
-Features of the app, including: “More info”; Sleep mode
-Support materials: https://floreotech.com/resources
-Tips for using the functionality of the iPad to easily make your own visual supports
