Buffalo Seminary hosts an open house tonight to introduce potential students to a “tradition of forward thinking” education.
They will also be unveiling their new VR/360 student marketing campaign entitled, “Day In the Life,” produced by Crosswater.
The project took a year in the making, capturing all the special events and experiences that are part of the daily life at the private all-girls school.
Buffalo Seminary is no stranger to forward thinking. In addition to the immersive marketing video, they have partnered with Crosswater on the development of a VR/AI language learning experience for their students.
Nancy Fernandez, Crosswater’s Director of Immersive Education, said “We need more women in the tech sector for representational purposes, cutting out some unintended bias and breaking the age old stereotype that tech is a man’s job. It’s (the VR/AI lab) a pipeline from high school to high tech.”

Today is the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.
“The best anti-poverty program is a world-class education.” former President Obama remarked in a State of the Union speech.
Here at Crosswater, we firmly agree with that statement, which is why we are dedicated to creating quality educational VR/360 content to inspire students of all socio-economic backgrounds. Our intent is to spark the imagination in young minds with immersive content that has greater retention value and enables them to absorb and understand more of what is achievable. We invite you to share your thoughts on how we can collectively work together to make education fun, and accessible to everyone, and contribute to the eradication of poverty worldwide.

The next iteration of Oculus’ VR headset has been introduced by Facebook’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg.
The new model will combine the benefits of existing VR headsets and minimize the negative aspects that are common complaints. Oculus Quest will be wireless and will not require a powerful PC to operate, but it will still hold the same gaming functions that VR users enjoy by using the Oculus Rift.
Exciting new developments in VR technology will continue over the coming years, propelling the industry further and further into mainstream success. The Oculus Quest is expected to be released in spring of 2019.
