“Every child is a genius in his or her own way. VR can be the key to awakening the genius inside.” This statement comes from a study done by Beijing Bluefocus E-Commerce Co about public education.
Virtual Reality works on the premise of creating a virtual world and allowing users to interact with it. This immersive technology can be used in classrooms to further enhance student learning and engagement that never existed before. Virtual Reality-based learning has been proven to increase student’s attention level by 100% and improves test scores by over 30%. VR allows users to learn faster, remember longer, and improve decision making.
This offers a fun and unique way to learn about any subject. Instead of being taught by textbooks, students have the capability to experience history, science and other subjects in a virtual environment. Students can perform hands-on virtual exercises with additional devices like Leap Motion sensor controller. VR does not just benefit students but it also has advantages for the workplace. VR technology has the capability of providing educational training to professionals such as Doctors, Surgeons, Dentists, Teachers and more.
