Jamie Buchanan-Dunlop

Digital Explorer

Educator and expedition-leader, Jamie Buchanan-Dunlop recognised the need to narrow the gap between science and his students. In 2004, he began experimenting with the use of technology in the classroom to find ways to spark his pupils’ imaginations. By 2007, he founded Digital Explorer to provide his students with real-life encounters with field scientists working in the remote corners of the planet.

A decade later, Digital Explorer has made science an exciting subject for millions of children around the globe. In addition to the Oceans Education Explore Live programmes, it has added 360 Virtual Reality as a new tool to support teachers in their mission to inspire students to learn. In 2017, Digital Explorer’s Arctic 360VR reached over 1.1 million views.

In the session, Jamie will introduce the power of VR and its ability to provide students with first-person experience in new environments spanning the depths of the ocean in a submarine or abseiling in an Arctic glacier.
