#6 Why Google is Leading the Charge in Educational VR
Google is known for lots of things. Online search engine, cool internships, Android, Cardboard, Chrome. But what a lot of people might not be aware of is googles involvement in the education space, with Google Drive being used in almost every single educational institution, and Chromebooks being the most popular device among students. Lyman Missimer is Chief of Business development, Education at Google. I first saw Lyman speak at the Columbia Entreprenuership festival on VR back in April 2016 and he was part of the panel that initially spurred my interest in VR to begin with. Lyman and I discuss what Googles plan is for educational VR, and how Google Expeditions is being used by teachers to take virtual field trips around the world. Many companies and individuals look to Google for leadership in various fields, so if you want to know what they're up to I suggest you give this a listen.
