Transcend the Classroom with Virtual Place-Based Learning

Transcend the Classroom with Virtual Place-Based Learning | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Simulation-based learning allows us to play in a highly immersive environment that reflects aspects of the real world. In virtual simulations, we can explore and create with much lower stakes than we would encounter in the real world. Questions of “What if?” flourish in a virtual simulation as we create and experience new possibilities with increasing realism. With smartphones making access to virtual reality easier and easier, virtual simulations can now become part of place-based learning in the classroom.
