With this newest partner, we are helping teachers in three different NJ schools reach students from high poverty backgrounds dealing with broken families, learning disabilities, and violence so they have a renewed interest in themselves and their education. Below is a heartfelt message from one of our teachers:
“Dear Arman N Roy Foundation, I would like to thank you for your donation of virtual reality headsets to my classroom. The shift of instruction that has taken place due to these enhancements has been immaculate. As an educator seeking to provide my students the best instruction, their excitement has ignited a new fire within me. To seek out new methods to incorporate these tools has further pushed me to be a better teacher. I attribute all of this to this great donation that has been made on your behalf. My students have continued to excel and extend their learning. Through the use of the virtual reality headsets my students have been able to explore places throughout the world. They have enhanced their understanding of art concepts with up-close experiences. In addition to this, they have begun to listen to audio tours and explanations. It has been a joy watching these students construct their own knowledge, develop questions about the subject matter, and move beyond what they see simply in a textbook. On behalf of my students and myself, we truly thank you!
- With gratitude, Mr. Rivera”
