Virtual Reality in the Classroom
VIRTUAL REALITY OFFERS A UNIQUE, MULTI-SENSORY IMMERSIVE LEARNING EXPERIENCE FOR CHILDREN, ALLOWING THEM TO ACCESS ENHANCED AND SENSORY-BASED EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING.
Immersive, engaging experiences
With virtual reality, students can visit places not practical or even possible in real life. Imagine exploring the inside of a blood vessel, the structure of an atom, the depths of the ocean or the surface of the moon. With virtual reality places can be explored as if you were actually there and students can experience and interact with creatures they will likely never see in their lifetimes.
Increased knowledge retention
Virtual reality provides one of the most important aspects of learning that no other technology can match, that of experience. In his Cone of Experience, Edgar Dale theorised that we retain around 10% of what we read, yet 90% of what we experience ourselves. Virtual reality facilitates knowledge through retention at the highest possible level, bringing personal experience into the classroom and engaging children in new activities that are not normally possible.
The ClassVR portal provides an easy way to find great, curriculum aligned educational VR resources. Find ready made collections, or individual resources to build your own lesson. You can even upload and store your own VR content, such as 360 degree images and videos.
DELIVERING YOUR LESSONS
Now you’ve built your VR lesson, deliver it to every student simultaneously, and guide them through the experience, highlighting points of interest and promoting collaboration and peer discussion along the way. ClassVR helps you monitor what they are seeing, helping keep everyone on track.
SETUP, TRAINING AND SUPPORT
Our technicians can configure and setup the ClassVR portal for you and configure the system ready for you to use. We then give your teachers all the information they need about the headsets themselves, starting right from the basics, with ongoing support in your local area.
Self-led learning allows students to explore at their own pace, making their own decisions and learning in their own way. ClassVR’s pre-printed worksheets and VR/AR experiences allow students to continue their learning independently, with the knowledge that they are focused on resources you have defined.

“Over the past few months we’ve been experimenting with some new and creative methods to engage our children within the classroom. Through using our recently acquired ClassVR headsets, we’ve found a vast improvement not only in children’s engagement with learning, but in their motivation to both plan and write a story.”
