VR IN EDUCATION
Our goal is to introduce VR to students as an added fun way of learning, opening up for the use of VR in future applications and giving the next generation a glimpse of the future. What once may be thought of as a ‘novel gaming tool’, VR is now shaping up to be the future of business. There are so many ways VR can be used in different industries including science, medical and health, education, engineering, sales and training which we cover in our brief presentation.
Studies over the recent decade have shown that people utilizing virtual reality learn a lot faster and hold the information longer than reading or watching a video. Due the immersive nature of VR, the scenario is taken in by the brain as an actual bodily experience attached to your own thoughts and feelings. This means the experience is stored as a memory which is easily remembered. Studies also show that using new technologies and 3D environments engages students and brings more fun to the classroom which results in a higher motivation for students to learn.
Imagine witnessing the Apollo 11 mission as it happened, exploring space or experiencing the sinking of the Titanic through the eyes of a passenger… it is all possible with VR!
HOW IT WORKS
We have a great selection of educational VR experiences which appeal to many departments such as art, science and engineering. With many in accordance with STEM. We can also personalise the programme by selecting experiences to best suit your lesson plan.
Below are a few examples;
The Body VR – shrink down to the size of a blood cell and take a tour of the human body, traversing blood vessels and seeing organs up close
Google Blocks - Create and merge solid objects to create structures which can be brought to life. We can even print your creations using our 3D printing service.
Titanic VR and Original Apollo 11 mission - See history
And many more
