Immersive Technology in schools is on the rise

Immersive Technology in schools is on the rise | k12 Blended Learning - K12 | Scoop.it

The number of students across the globe who will access virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) via head-mounted displays will jump from 2.1 million in 2016 to 83 million in 2021, reports Futuresource Consulting.

EdWeek Market Brief indicates new partnerships with educational publishers by Microsoft, Google and Oculus will help drive more usage in the U.S.

A recent survey from Project Tomorrow found that as of this year, only nine percent of students in grades 6 through 8 and eight percent of students in grades 9 through 12 have experience with AR and VR in a class setting.

However, cardboard viewers and cheaper headsets, like offerings from Lenovo, Acer and Samsung, will make it a bit easier for schools to incorporate VR and AR in the classroom.

Here's how to become visible to students in a Virtual Classroom

Here's how to become visible to students in a Virtual Classroom | k12 Blended Learning - K12 | Scoop.it
If you have taught an online course you know firsthand what it is like to teach in a virtual environment, along with the challenges which are inherent for working and interacting in this type of classroom. Online teaching is viewed by some instructors as a function that must be managed, and others see the true potential it holds and how it is a process to be nurtured. If instructors are going to create conditions that are conducive to learning they must do more than manage a class, they must be active, present, and available for students. This requires the development of a virtual presence, one that sustains social interactions, while never being able to actually meet students face-to-face.

Students who attend a traditional classroom have the benefit of visually observing the instructor and their involvement in the class, which provides important clues and feedback about the learning process. The nature of those visual observations change with an online classroom environment and students look for other indicators that let them know their instructor is actively present and engaged in the class. Students develop perceptions not only about their instructor, but the school as well, based upon how the course is designed and the level of involvement by the instructor.

E-Learners Today and in the Future: A Paradox

E-Learners Today and in the Future: A Paradox | k12 Blended Learning - K12 | Scoop.it
One of the observations that I am able to make about e-learners today based upon the 11 years that I have been teaching in a totally online environment, is that there exists a paradox that is both curious and ironic. This paradox concerns the characteristics of e-learners as they have emerged over time.To paraphrase a well known adage:" You can take the student out of the brick and mortar classroom but you can't take the brick and mortar classroom and its attributes out of the student"
