Virtual Reality Headsets
A New Perspective
Virtual Reality helps students feel immersed in an experience, gripping their imagination and stimulating thought in ways not possible with traditional books, pictures or videos, and facilitates a far higher level of knowledge retention.
Virtual reality presents an unparalleled opportunity to raise engagement and increase knowledge retention for students of all ages, through personal experience.
ClassVR comes complete with a constantly growing library of thousands of curriculum-aligned virtual, augmented and mixed reality content, for use across all subjects and age ranges.
Benefits of Virtual Reality in Education
Enhancing Student Engagement
Students can experience learning and actively participate in the lesson with virtual reality. By exploring immersive learning environments such as visiting the moon or traveling to far-away lands, teachers can boost classroom excitement and engagement while inspiring students’ imaginations!
Boosting Knowledge Retention
Virtual reality fully immerses students and completely focuses their senses on the teaching topic. When experiencing topics as if they’re reality, students’ brains create clear, detailed mental maps, helping to improve knowledge retention by up to 75%.
Improving Student Learning Outcomes
Experiential learning with virtual reality benefits a range of student outcomes. With engaging, individualized experiences like walking with prehistoric dinosaurs or holding a beating human heart, teachers can improve student understanding, attainment, and even increase test scores by up to 20%!
Developing Collaboration and Social Skills
Virtual reality improves teamwork and social skills by creating exciting, collaborative learning environments. Students can safely communicate and investigate learning topics virtually in pairs, or groups – all of which benefit from interaction and collaboration in the classroom!
Teachers can genuinely put their students into other people’s shoes with virtual reality. By helping students to see life from different points of view, such as exploring different cultures or experiencing what life is like for refugees, educators can improve emotional awareness and build empathy.
