Why Virtual Reality 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.

“We made the switch from Dell to Bytespeed NUCs a few years ago and haven’t looked back since. The NUCs provide surprisingly robust performance at a great price, and with Bytespeed’s 5 year warranty, it was an easy switch to make. Since then, we have been able to put replacement plans into place for all our machines. It has really helped teacher morale and helps our technology department by reducing the number of tickets for aging and ancient computers. Beyond the NUCs, we have purchased servers and VR units from Bytespeed as well and have been more than satisfied at every step. Their service and personal touch in communication is second to none and an oft-missing component in the vendor-customer relationship. We have also responded to other districts when they ask about the NUCs and can honestly and easily recommend them, and Bytespeed very highly.” -Darrell Cheney, Director of Technology at Channelview ISD, Channelview TX
