What happen when we hear the words “Virtual Reality” ? We may think of people wearing big helmets that move them to another location from the comfort of their home or classroom. However, VR is slowly becoming a reality in the classroom. It doesn’t look quite like what you might imagine, but it is improving all the time.
Education is also an area which has adopted VR for school kids and teachers. VR directly has an advantage and impact in interacting groups of students within the same environment. It has ability to access data in an easy way to students which is both fun and easy to understand (learn). Also, students can interact with the objects in a manner that the places they can’t go (even to the Moon / Space) are now they able to go with VR.
Here, Space Exploration VR App helps you to explore the Space through VR… where students can feel the things which they never felt before.
Edger Dale’s Cone of Experience has shown the average person only remembers 20% of what they hear and 30% of what they see, but up to 90% of what they personally experience. As a result, VR helping students to become more attentive during lessons.
VR can promote social integration of learners within a classroom environment by bringing together students who have different learning styles. So, we’ll need to develop best practices for its use in the classroom.
Now is a time to bring VR to your classroom today and become part of the future of education.
