Virtual Reality as a Powerful Learning Tool
Virtual reality is capable of doing and performing a lot of things, it could relieve chronic pain, give you an unique virtual identity as your alter-ego, allows you to play with distinct animals with your virtual hands, and even take you to the hottest sold-out concert of your favorite artist.
All of which would happen in a fully immersive virtual space. But let’s not go beyond that; let’s talk about learning and how it will be transformed and revolutionized in the near future.
When I was in High School and college, I was always skipping class; it wasn’t because I hate learning, it was simply because I thought text books were boring, and I didn’t enjoy the generic way of learning and absorbing knowledge.
From the 80’s and up until today, teachers were able to adopt videos, CD, DVD and power point presentations in their teaching. Now, teachers could teach with virtual or augmented reality powered equipment or head mounted display such as Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear VR.
But imagine in the future, you would be turning in your project in the format of a 360 degree video or a highly interactive virtual presentation, a history teacher would be able to take you back to ancient Rome, a physics teacher would be able to take you into space, and a music teach would be able to take you to a sold out Sir Paul McCartney concert powered by JauntVR!
In school or home based learning experiences don’t have to be so boring and plain anymore! How cool would that be?
All these exciting scenarios are made possible with the newest virtual reality technology.
Contrary to popular belief that it would take many years for the virtual trend to hit the masses, but consider the speed it is evolving, advancing and maturing today on daily basis, we believe it won’t be long, that virtual and augmented reality will completely change our lifestyle, and including the way we learn a new skill or consuming a set of fresh, new knowledge.
