Building for the future: virtual experiences for underserved communities

My research looks at the design and meaningful integration of education technologies, focusing on emerging trends and new-media tools like virtual reality. My work takes a human-centered design approach to build technologies for the most underserved communities and classrooms. While the uncertainty for the future is very high, I am also very optimistic (and excited) for what lies ahead: the implications for my work in edtech/VR take on a whole new perspective in this current climate. Along with my work in learning technology, I also helped start a community of non-profit makerspaces and science labs in India, MakerGhat. 

Aditya Vishwanath is a doctoral student in learning sciences and technology design at Stanford Graduate School of Education, where he is a Knight-Hennessey Scholar.
