Virtual Reality Learning: A Technological Venture In Education - Infographic
The New Year brings exciting changes, new developments and optimistic approaches to what the future may hold. Students in particular are eagerly waiting the opportunity to experience new changes in the classroom. With classroom study never lacking in development, we wanted to take a look at how Virtual Reality has evolved in education and how it's used as an effective learning tool in today's classrooms.
Virtual Reality(VR) technology has been present in one form or another for a number of years now and has slowly but surely been edging its way into the education system. Being the most immersive modern technology, the latest developments in Virtual Reality have changed the face of education by becoming an effective supplement to traditional learning methods. With the use of Virtual Reality headsets, the future of education is now!
Virtual Learning Environment
The Virtual Learning Environment is a combination of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. With VR Learning slowly working its way into the classroom in recent years, the Virtual Learning Environment has primarily focused on cognitive development for students. The main areas of this development being language, numerical understanding, comprehensive improvement, strengthening concept development and classroom engagement.
Did you know...
29% of the secondary schools in the UK have decided to join the Virtual Learning Environment programme.
26% of those secondary schools have actually implemented the Virtual Learning Environment programme. And
9% of the primary schools in the UK have adopted the VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) programme.
Traditional Classroom Vs Virtual Classroom
How is the traditional classroom different from the virtual classroom? Where traditional classrooms focus on textbook reading, an instructional method of study and less engagement, the virtual classroom helps to surround the students with simulated environments, objects, and people, and encourages them to be part of the information and truly make their studies come to life.
Helping to bridge the real and digital world, Virtual Learning turns every opportunity into a reality! 39% of the students who enjoy the Virtual Learning Environment the most are members of the 6-10 age group and are learning in ever increasing ways though Virtual Reality Classes.
Virtual Reality In The Classroom
When Virtual Reality was first seriously implemented in 2015. Since then VR has evolved quite considerably and now an increasing number of classrooms are implementing this digital medium for their own students to experience. In 2017, Virtual Reality evolved into a new form, Augmented Reality, which brings virtual reality into real life environments. Technology development within education and classrooms themselves is now more exciting than ever.
