Over recent years, technological advancements have enabled the use of virtual reality to become mainstream, as the gap between technology and education is being bridged. For example, through the use of generative-AI tools, you can now create an environment that is totally computer-generated, that makes scenes appear real, as though the user is actually immersed in their surroundings.

As spaces such as those created by Igloo start to become more accessible, educators are exploring their potential to revolutionise and modernise the traditional classroom experience. Providing an entirely immersive experience, students are engaged and interested. An immersive space such as a room or cylinder can enhance classrooms and enrich learning for students, and this blog will delve into some of the reasons why.

How Can an Immersive Space Be Used For Education?

  • Virtual field trips- Visit any location or time travel to any era, whilst staying in the classroom.
  • Simulation Research - Recreate real-life situations so reaction times and decision-making can be put to the test in a realistic scenario.
  • Making VR accessible and Inclusive - Staff and students can become familiar with VR, through the easy to use 360° platform.
  • Design Visualisations - Allows for 3D or BIM design models to be viewed and adapted.
  • Simulating hazardous environments - Such as emergency or factory environments, so students can experience the situation in a safe manner.
  • Enhancing Game Development - Allowing a more collaborative way to create and review VR gameplay.
  • Showcasing Student content - To a group, who can collectively assess and review.
  • Open Day and Campus Engagement - Promote your facilities to applicants by bringing the campus to them.

We offer a range of immersive spaces that provide the experience of a virtual reality headset, but with a whole group inside. This means you can optimise collaboration and education, as the experience is shared, making it perfect for classrooms, as we have a large roster of educational clients. Our immersive classroom spaces offer a whole host of benefits from engaged students, access to real-world experience, interactive classrooms, and collaborative spaces.

Virtual reality can offer a plethora of opportunities, which enables students to gain experiences they would be unable to have otherwise, from the convenience of their own classroom.

Looking To The Future

The fusion of virtual reality with education marks a pivotal moment in the evolution of teaching and learning. As technological advancements bring virtual reality to the forefront, we find ourselves on the cusp of a transformative era in education.
