The morning school bell has been replaced by the soft melodies of Zoom and Teams, as a gallery of pixelated faces join the 8 o’clock online class. Facetime has become a mundane part of life the past – almost – two years, with ‘zoom fatigue’ and lack of motivation starting to show more and more. Even as the world is starting to go ‘back to normal’, working from home and online classes are now more integrated in how our day-to-day lives are being led. But! Facetime is lacking the interaction craved and needed for a blossoming learning environment.
The convenience of learning from home should not be overshadowed by the unimaginative and repetitive frame of online education through facetime-platforms.
SiliconHagen has been working with educators and experts in the immersive field of VR to create a library of virtual reality solutions that can help bring back a level of excitement and productivity, while creating an immersive educational learning environment.
“VR enables students to learn through practical experience, as students are immersed in a world that simulates real-life. Learning through experience has been argued as the most effective way to learn, and studies have shown that it increases the quality of learning and retention by 70-90%” source
Benefits of choosing VR in Education
Knowledge of the subject-area
Active experience instead of passive information
Helps the student understand complex theories, concepts, or subjects
VR boosts creativity and imagination while improving memory power
Offers an environment with no distractions
Gamification of ‘dry’ subjects makes for a fun and existing game-based education
It takes very little time to understand very complex topics
Reduces the need for books that can quickly become outdated
Improves digital skills, interaction, problem solving, critical thinking, and collaboration
SiliconHagen offers an ever-expanding library of 3D models, customized scenarios/storyboard building, in-session multiple-choice quizzes, and much more. The solutions are formed to fit the needs of the users, participants as well as guest lecturers/presenters, and they can be accessed through mobile devices, pc/laptops/macs, and virtual reality hardware.
Say that you need to teach your students a skill that requires an experiment or task, to back up the theoretical aspect. The student is now free to engage in the activity in a safe space, while they are able to repeat the exercise – and without wasting any resources. They can even do it at home.
The virtual experience can help in the humanities as well – fx history. Here you can help the students understand historical events through experience and the senses as well as the lecture half. Walk through ancient Rome; Settle in Normandy with the Vikings in 911; or travel across the ocean with Christopher Columbus.
