Virtual Reality for Schools
How the full immersion changes the educational system
Technologies always play a concrete role in improving the learning processes. It is true that thanks to spreading and availability of VR technology, the well-known school lessons are transferred to another environment now, more interactive and immersive, creating some new emotions that have never been experienced by students before.
VR is meant to rethink the relations between a teacher and a student and the subject of their interaction. Using VR in class lets student to discover world in an absolute innovative way. Teachers do not need to rely only on descriptions in the textbooks and video materials to explain, for instance, the nature of dark matter or the work of our body. Just put the VR headset on and fly to outer space.
The huge step, in the context of education, to the implementation of VR in schools, has already been made.
The developers created some much cheaper products so now buying 30 Oculus Go helmets for a class does not seem impossible or difficult. It was necessary to make VR devices to leave the game space and to find the mass audience. The equipment finally creates a possibility for synchronous learning in class.

So why do you need to start thinking about using VR in class?
It enhances the motivation

We all had some disciplines that we like or dislike. In most cases, it is related to some problems with understanding the material. Chemistry or physics may seem impossible to comprehend for some student. What if they will have a chance to look at the school disciplines in the other way by transferring them in VR-experience. The form of this immersion is able to "wake up" their minds again. That is why VR technology is hard to describe. It goes beyond the simple words contributing to the development of creativity and interaction.
It is both educational and entertaining

Just remember the emotions of students when they just got the new textbooks or started using iPad during a lesson. It intrigues and revives. Such experiment changes the nature of education giving more freedom, ability of creative self-expression and full immersion in the material. They offer students the new ways to discover the world around us.
The investment in future

The undoubted fact, in order to build a successful career in the future, students must have a technical intelligence. Today even a toddler is able to launch the game on your iphone or find the favorite cartoon on Youtube. One more fact, VR started to invade the other social spheres of life: the usage of it is well-spread in medicine, corporate training, industrial sector, and others. The virtual reality market is in an extremely active phase of growth. The volume of content sales has tripled since last year, and by 2020, according to the forecasts of SuperData Research, will be almost $40 billion.
Education should be interesting. It should stimulate the students' imagination, open the doors to the future researches and development of the science. The learning process, especially at school, leaves an indelible mark in our memory. Methods, which are aimed at making the process of gaining knowledge easier, varies from teacher to teacher, from class to class. In 2018, VR technology is one of them.

The full immersion of kids in studying enhances their motivation and efficiency of learning. The realistic picture in front of eyes stimulates the brain what means a qualitatively new level of information processing based on VR.
