Virtual Reality Bringing the Classroom into the Third Dimension
An introductory workshop to virtual reality saw boys from Years 5 and 6 taken on a virtual tour around sites such as the Acropolis, the British Museum and even active volcanoes.
This eye-opening workshop was devised as an exciting way to see how virtual reality can impact upon learning in the classroom and allowed pupils to explore the different ways in which it can be used, such as an aid for story writing and creative thinking or as a blank canvas for painting.
James Wilding, Academic Principal, commented:
“Parents are subjected to a lot of negative information about excessive screen time, but there is a very positive side to the digital age. Our aim is to equip pupils with the type of computational thinking that will make them a star attraction for all employers of the future.”
