Virtual Reality in the Classroom

Why is virtual reality in the classroom important?

  

The diversity of learners within education is neither linear nor constant.  Educators are challenged to be responsive and understanding when encouraging learners to construct meaning while adhering to stringent standards. By integrating oral histories onto a virtual reality (VR) platform, students can learn within an authentic educational environment where lessons allow students to not only interact with multiple first person perspectives, but also experience learning with 360-degree videos in a VR world.
