Bring your lessons to life with VR for the classroom!
We discuss the benefits of virtual reality technology for the classroom, how ClassVR headsets can enhance learning, and the rental packages available.
Virtual reality (VR) for the classroom is an exciting and immersive way to keep your students interested in course content. Students can explore computer-generated surroundings as if they were really there, and interact with this environment in 3D. Teachers can engage them with unique educational experiences, monitor their progress, and choose from thousands of integrated lessons. From conducting scientific experiments to geographical field trips, virtual reality can transform almost any subject into a class favourite! This blog outlines some of the features ClassVR kits offer, and how they could benefit your students.
Features of ClassVR
The standalone ClassVR headset was designed for the classroom, with an easy and reliable user interface. The equipment can be customised to meet the needs of all students. In fact, thanks to its simple controls and adjustable focal, brightness, and sound settings, it can even be worn with glasses! Besides the hardware’s adaptable nature, other key features include:
- High-definition 5.5” display
- Wifi and Bluetooth compatibility
- Front-facing camera to support augmented reality (AR) content
- Facial padding for comfort
- Wipe-clean exterior
The ClassVR Portal wirelessly supervises and controls the headsets. This open platform supports ClassVR’s virtual reality and augmented reality content, and is a space in which users can create, upload, and share their own content.
The portal allows staff to control and manage all of the headsets connected to it. This gives teachers a quick and easy way to send lessons to students, monitor their progress, and support their learning.
How ClassVR can support your curriculum
VR for the classroom is an effective way for teachers to complement their lessons and enhance their students’ learning experience. The more focused kids are, the more likely they are to learn. With our ClassVR technology, students are engaged, receptive, and entertained!
Besides being fun, VR for the classroom offers a host of other benefits:
- Retention: learning by experience can boost knowledge retention by up to 75%
- Engagement: on average the brain can recall just 10% of what it reads, but 90% of a ‘lived’ experience
- Achievement: the use of VR technology can boost exam results by up to 20%
ClassVR technology comes with a wealth of curriculum-aligned content to help students understand and visualise complicated concepts.
In fact, there’s a whole library of augmented, virtual, and mixed reality resources to choose from. Not to mention downloadable structured lesson plans and worksheets, too!
Our unique leasing agreements allow you to spread the cost of ClassVR kits, with affordable subscriptions to suit your budget. Furthermore, we can deliver curriculum training to make sure your staff and students get the most out of your new technology.
Our packages currently include sets of four, eight, or 30 headsets. These are available in both standard and premium models. There’s also the option to purchase USB handsets in bundles of four.
