RealityNext is an education technology studio-lab where teens can create and share immersive stories and games from the inside of the Virtual Reality experience – and without any coding.
Our vision is to blend education with maker spaces, storytelling, and theater while letting students generate content as an uninhibited curiosity stream, fueled by the magic of VR.
“Our goal is to transform learning from a passive practice of absorbing facts to learning through play—active, hands-on participation in making. If we succeed with our mission, the school of the future will provide multimedia, interdisciplinary education that makes kids eager to learn and have fun doing it.”
— Joel Magalnick
We launched our initiatives to bring you up to date on our testing of immersive 360º education methods and technologies.
“We want to make virtual reality less about a ‘chalkboard-familiar’ classroom or the super-reality of lifelike recognition and more about the notion of a relatively ‘easy and flexible’ collage—a self-made narrative/experience as an incentive for learning. By means of stories and games each participant creates an emotional bond between the group, the audience, and the technology.”

As we turn our vision into reality, our team would love to have you get involved and hear your feedback.
