Hi! My name's Collin Poseley, and I'm the founder of a non-profit company called DeepWoods Expedition Company.
In each episode I strive to reveal the uses of XR for educational purposes, demystify the technology and terminology, take a critical look at the most recent VR and AR releases.
At DeepWoods, we're rethinking education for the 21st century. By supporting us here, you will be part of an educational community of learners who are not limited by age or location. We are dedicated to creating and maintaining an ecosystem which continually innovates the use of immersive digital technologies. We endeavor to engage every student in the learning process with collaborative digital experiences and meaningful first-person interactions.
The videos are for students, teachers, parents, and administrators looking to learn more about leveraging the latest digital educational experiences to enhance engagement with standards based curriculum.
We have so much to cover in the months ahead - and I need you to help me create new episodes!
What is Patreon?
Patreon is a service where you can pledge to send a regular payment to creators, so they can support themselves and keep making new content.
Patreon means that creators serve their viewers, not advertisers or corporate sponsors.
How often will I end up paying?
You pay per month. We will always release at least one video a month, but attempt to post more. (In the very unlikely circumstance that we don't make a single video, we won't charge anyone for that month).
What does the money go toward?
DeepWoods Expedition Co. was founded in 2018, as a 501(c)3 non-profit company. This organization is dedicated to bringing immersive educational experience to students of all ages, to reimagining education in a technology centered society, and to bring the magic of discovery into classrooms and family rooms across the world through Extended Reality (XR).
I have been a media, video, and photography teacher since 2004. Using technology to engage students has been my passion, but even more so is the creative process. DeepWoods and this Patreon channel is an opportunity to do both, to create and to educate.
The membership donations made here will directly support the mission and vision of DeepWoods.
One of our short-term goals is to bring VR to as many classrooms as possible. Your patronage will help us obtain class sets of the latest VR hardware which we will share with students and educators. Currently, our focus is to purchase more Oculus Go headsets.
In May, we hope to be the first to lend class sets of Oculus Quest to students and teachers in low-income neighborhoods completely for FREE.
Content being reviewed needs to be paid for so as to keep our neutrality. Patreon supporters will help offset these costs.
As we explore the XR ecosystem, it has become apparent that the educational microsystem within is underdeveloped. While XR hardware is evolving at an exponential rate, there exists a huge deficit of worthy educational content. Your support will further our App development goal for 2019, where we are planning to release our first AR App, Animate History, by fall.
In five years, we hope to be developing leading immersive digital educational experience across platforms for students of all ages.
A physical manifestation of the educational philosophy explored here logically results in the formation of a unique Charter School prototype. Patrons will help build the foundation for a Charter School concept and help build a physical school where students will spend far more time collaborating, exploring, and creating than simply consuming knowledge.
What's in it for me?
All Patrons pledging $1 or more will find themselves immersed in a journey deep into the world of XR. Updates on our process about the show and a growing collection of articles and videos that should be of interest to any supporter of XR in education. Plus, for educators access to our library of premium standards based lesson plans.
Pledge $3 a video and you'll receive an exclusive bonus video each month. This is called XR Deep Dive and has a thoughtful look at the implications of new XR technologies and apps.
Those who pledge $5 can view new episodes 24 hours early and will receive loads of behind the scenes goodies, chances to vote on topics for upcoming videos, and more.
And for those who pledge $10 or more will appear in the credits at the end of every video.
Will I get previous Patron-only content when I subscribe?
Yes, but only after your first payment has been processed (which happens at the beginning of the month).
Anything to declare?
Your contribution as a Patron is tax deductible!
