Virtual Reality in Education: Welcome to the New Age of Learning
Any educator or trainer will tell you: it’s hard to get students’ attention…with distractions coming from cell phones, computers and other devices. Consequently, a war is being waged in classrooms around the world.
The rules of the game have changed; students just aren’t the same; the teachers of tomorrow can either fight technology…or use it to their advantage.
These technologies have many advantages. They foster a great deal of curiosity so why not use them to get students’ attention and get them involved in class? Explaining to a student what a production line looks like is one thing; being able to show him or her – via a virtual reality headset – is a whole different kettle of fish.
