Virtual Reality is the Future of Career Education

Virtual Reality is the Future of Career Education | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Virtual Reality will be omnipresent and ubiquitous in 5 years. It is hard to find now. It is completely missing in education. The question is, who will take a leadership role and fill the gap? Why not you?
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

I've been dreaming of full immersion virtual reality education since MECC distributed Oregon Trail on floppy disks. (Way before the turn of the century kids!) 


Who's ready to dive in head first?

This article talks about one of the many future uses of VR, as a means of education. You asked us what we thought the future of technology is, well Sir, I do believe this is it.

Pfaff, J (1 March, 2015). Virtual Reality is the Future of Career Education. EduKWest.http://www.edukwest.com/virtual-reality-is-the-future-of-career-education/


This article is an expansion on the idea of virtual reality and what it can do for us. It explains that virtual reality has the possibility of providing us with real life work experiences. Mentions the oculus also and discusses the potential of providing many people across the world at once a unique experience of the scenario in real time. Author states he himself is jumping on board and others should also try filling the gap between VR and online education. Technology allowing people to have a in-depth life like experience before having to really experience it is obviously important and will be massive if done properly.

Difficult to imagine all of the 'in-between' steps between where we are now and being hard-wired into direct-to-brain electrode stimulation.

Educade | Lesson Plans | CREATE A NARRATIVE-DRIVEN SCAVENGER HUNT WITH AURASMA | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Aurasma can encourage learners to go beyond the classroom to connect and enhance what they learn by pulling resources from the physical and the digital and then sharing those augmented reality scenes with others.


Learning Objectives:

  • Write a multi-part fictional narrative that logically ties in with actual locations on the school campus.
  • Create an engaging narrative experience for the reader through expressive and provocative narration, animation, and/or images.
  • Evaluate and deconstruct the narratives of others through class-wide discussion and reflection of own narrative.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Ah the things we can do with mobile phones and big net tech. A project using Aurasma could make your school year sing.

Augmented Reality will impact on education in the future If not already. Get on board and explore the possibilities.  Very exciting.  Can be tough at first but worth pushing through the pain.
