Danielarv's curator insight, October 1, 3:12 PM
Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality are new technologies which engage students in a completely new way which is more fun and engaging for them, and it increases retention. This article show the 10 companies that are working on education in virtual reality and augmented reality. The first company is Immersive VR Education which created a Lecture VR is a VR app which simulates a lecture hall in virtual reality, while adding special effects that are accompanied by images, videos, and immersive experiences which enhance the lesson. The second company is Unimersiv which is a VR learning platform which releases educational content on a monthly basis.The next company is Alchemy VR which is creating immersive educational experiences on an impressive scale. These are the others companies Google, thinglink, gamar, Schell Games,EON Reality,Nearpod and WoofbertVR which are working on it. Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality are the next big step forward in education, and these technologies are good for educators and students alike. These technologies give us a window into the future of education, and it probably won’t be long until it is standard for classrooms to come equipped with some form of VR or AR technology.

For today’s students to effectively compete in the global workforce, they must develop the skills, understandings, and mindsets necessary to prepare them for the careers and challenges of tomorrow. This means more than learning to read and write – it means being able to master academic content and apply that knowledge across contexts in a meaningful way.
