the New Platform for Educational Learning and Training
Virtual Reality is more than just games. It is a new platform for Educational learning and Training. Using virtual reality environments, we can place users in any real world or virtual situation. Virtual Reality can be a great tool for practice applications in technical fields such as mechanical, nursing, and other industries.
Virtual Reality can also take your students on fieldtrips that would not be possible due to expenses and logistics. Imagine taking students to visit the Grand Canyon while studying landforms or taking a tour of the Parthenon while studying ancient civilizations. There are endless possibilities of where you can travel with Virtual Reality. Imagine studying the muscular structure of the human body or traveling to the outer space while learning about the solar system. There are many applications for educational and training possibilities.
Research has shown in virtual world-building simulations, low-performing students improved academically more than those learning through traditional methods, even more so than their high achieving counterparts. The use of Virtual Reality is also a useful therapy for students with disabilities, post traumatic stress disorder, or social anxiety.
Below are sample applications that can be used for educational purposes:
