(Silicon.co.uk) More and more educators are thinking of how to integrate VR technology into their schools, but the problem a lot of people appear to be struggling with is how best to use it. “Virtual reality has been around a long time, but the ability to take it into your classrooms has not,” said Sanjesh Sharma, a trainer at ClassVR. “For schools the important part is how do we make this technology work in the classroom to deliver experiences that we’ve not been able to deliver before?”
The main issue Sharma identified is that, whereas other technologies currently being used in classrooms – such as smartphones and tablets – are widely used by students, virtual reality is much further behind on the adoption curve so will be unfamiliar to the majority of schoolchildren and teachers.
