New School VR Podcast
About This Show
The New School VR podcast is a show about learning technologies so powerful, they transcend the limits of reality itself. Imagine atoms the size of your house, or billion-star galaxies at living room scale. To our eyes and ears, these visions are real, and the implications for the future of learning are beyond imagination.
New School VR is a weekly interview-style podcast, helping parents, teachers, instructors, artists and engineers navigate the vast potential of VR and AR-assisted learning.

The 5 E's of VR Learning with Martin Bukáček of Lifeliqe - Show 7
5 days ago
Lifeliqe (pronounced "lifelike") is an edtech startup with an enviable advantage in the VR learning space. Spun out of a sister company called Corinth, Lifeliqe hit the ground running with literally thousands of interactive 3D models for parents, teachers and students to put to use in both augmented and virtual reality environments.
Beginning with an iPad app that makes use of a familiar "Pokemon effect," combining virtual images with a real-time camera display to produce "mash-ups" or mixed reality experiences, Lifeliqe first caught the attention of the academic world as a means to make scientifically accurate models more fun and accessible throughout the learning process. As VR technologies hit the mass market in 2016, the company was perfectly positioned to introduce these 3D objects into fully interactive virtual experiences, which quickly drew interest from HTC Vive, and a formal educational partnership was born.
Calling in live from the Czech Republic, I had the privilege of interviewing Martin Bukáček, "Community Shaman" at both Corinth and Lifeliqe. Of particular note is the discussion toward the end of the interview about "the five E's of learning," and how they're applied in virtual learning experiences.
