Recent research demonstrates higher levels of college-knowledge, and a higher likelihood of having conversations with school personnel about college for middle school students who have experienced a campus tour. Given the importance of a campus tour and connections to campus personnel to ensure proper college match and fit, it is essential students explore as many campuses as possible. The challenge is time and distance. Virtual reality (VR) and artificial intelligence (AI) can address these challenges. This session will showcase GEAR UP North Carolina’s phone app features and research to date on effectiveness.
