Virtual Reality, most commonly referred to as VR, is making waves in education. But what is it? VR is a form of technology that allows pupils to become fully immersed in their surroundings. Imagine being transported to anywhere in the world without having to jump on a plane. Have you ever dreamed of visiting the Great Wall of China or the Galapagos Islands?
We know that experiencing something first hand can’t be beaten. But we also know that this is not always feasible. Using the power of virtual reality, PrimeVR is bringing the outside world into the classroom. Imagine visiting the Colosseum whilst learning about the Romans or blasting off into space during a topic on the Solar System. Our team of qualified teachers can deliver a range of workshops within your school to help bring your topic to life and inspire your pupils with their learning.Enquire Now
We know that excellent teaching has the greatest impact on pupil progress. But we also know that students only progress if they are engaged in their learning. VR can help with this; bring learning to life and set the scene for your scheme of work. Learning about volcanoes in Geography? Take your students to see a Supervolcano in Yellowstone National Park. Studying WW1 in History? Immerse yourself in the trenches. Trying to improve descriptive writing? Drop your class into the middle of Borneo rainforest.
For VR to have a meaningful impact, it should be planned alongside the requirements of the national curriculum and embedded into your scheme of work. We are a small team of qualified teachers who have developed a range of resources for you to use with your class following our workshops.
