ThingLink launches Virtual Reality Lessons App For Education | Cool Tools for 21st Century Learners

ThingLink launches Virtual Reality Lessons App For Education | Cool Tools for 21st Century Learners | Cool Tools for 21st Century Learners | Scoop.it
We are excited to launch VR Lessons, our first virtual reality content app. The app is designed for elementary school students, their teachers and parents. VR Lessons by ThingLink is a collection of interactive, 360° image and video journeys on a variety of topics including science, language, and arts. 

The first stories take students to visit different kinds of ecosystems from the French Alps to a jungle in the archipelago of northern Australia. As students turn their heads to look around, they can spot details and unlock additional information of each habitat in a narrated virtual reality environment.Virtual reality can take students to places they could only dream of visiting, but it is also an open canvas for students to imagine and build new worlds and experiences. We are making it possible for schools to use virtual reality as an engaging learning platform.
