SWANTON — Swanton Elementary School students are leaping into the technological future.
The school showcased its enhanced MergeEDU programs on Monday, Nov. 14, for officials from the Vermont Liquor and Lottery and the Agency of Education.
MergeEDU is a program for Android and Apple technology that uses virtual reality headsets and the device’s camera to show holograms that can be manipulated from the device. Students on Monday, for example, explored forests and tropical islands all while seated in their classroom.
The program is funded by the Liquor and Lottery and the Agency of Education, through their Educate and Innovate Initiative partnership.
