Virtual Reality is the Future of Career Education

Virtual Reality is the Future of Career Education | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | 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?

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.

Africa is rising and needs, not the failed models of the developed world but new models that are more suited to the massive demand that already exists for education and training. This is not more universities but more vocational learning. The great opportunity here, is to use the great gifts of the internet, that are already there, for free.

Mobile Tribes!

Stephen Dale's curator insight, April 20, 2014 8:05 AM

"The next big thing is getting smaller and smaller."

 

"The first generation of social media touted "networking", but the next generation, raised in always-on connectivity, will embrace ephemerality and digital tribalism. Those users will abandon the major social networks and migrate to more granular mobile villages with simpler ecosystems."

I think these two statements are pretty much spot-on, and will watch with interest as Facebook (and the 'others') tries to look small while continuing to gobble-up anyone and anything that looks like it might threaten its business model. We don't need one all-consuming platform, but that not how FB shareholders view the world.

 

Interesting times ahead!
