Why VR for Education?
Today’s educators understand it is difficult to reach students in the classroom using the same approach to curriculum and technology as we used yesterday. Immersive tools, such as Virtual Reality, offer educational opportunities you simply cannot get through traditional classroom methods. Immersive experiences nurture learning retention in a way that textbooks and individual student devices cannot compete with.
Virtual Reality provides an experience like no other. Unlike technology we are faced with day in and day out, in which the user’s experiences externally, VR places the user inside the experience itself. You are no longer looking a video of the grand canyon, you are standing there. You are no longer learning about the body in a book, you are travelling through the blood-stream examining cells. Experiences that once were never possible can be made real. In virtual reality you can travel into space. You can stand in front of a dinosaur that hasn’t walked the planet for 65 million years.
