Educators in VR is proud to announce our pioneering new project team vCoaching and Personal Development led by Dana-Maria aka CaptainVR. Their first event is Thursday, December 5, 2019, in AltspaceVR, and you are invited to join us for this free event.
Dana-Maria brings her evangelism in using virtual reality for coaching, training, and therapy applications to help people “captain their own lives.” The research and application of virtual reality is finding it a powerful tool for helping people to confront fears, build life skills, and become more effective in their professional lives and work.
In 2014, Dana-Marie won the Samsung VR Challenge for Best Virtual Reality Idea of the Netherlands, creating a VR application to help free people from their fears. It was successfully launched not only in the Netherlands but globally. She continues her pioneering work to help develop effective virtual reality applications with specialists around the world to help young people literally champion and captain their lives.
Here are some samples of her work.
You may keep up with all the great work Dana-Maria is doing on her YouTube channel, CaptainVR Facebook Page, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram, and you can always follow the team project in our Educators in VR Discord group.
Dana-Maria and the vCoaching and Personal Development team will be bringing the topics and speakers in this emerging field to our Educators in VR workshops regularly, so make sure you attend Thursday’s event and keep an eye on our calendar for more news and updates.
