5 Ways to Create Virtual Learning Experiences in Your Classroom

5 Ways to Create Virtual Learning Experiences in Your Classroom | The Distance Learning Revolution | Scoop.it

"The reason that many teachers strive for a more virtual experience instead of the traditional talking points is that the interaction makes the lesson more memorable to the students. Concepts and ideas that seem too complicated under time-honored instruction methods are easier to grasp when the students can experience the lessons. This does not mean that you need a VR machine to create a virtual experience either. There are a number of tools that can help you establish a virtual environment that makes lessons more entertaining while making the concepts easier to understand."

Helping Learners Pay More Attention: Can Classroom Strategies Work for e-learning?

Helping Learners Pay More Attention: Can Classroom Strategies Work for e-learning? | The Distance Learning Revolution | Scoop.it

In a classroom scenario, students are physically present in their classes, but not paying attention to all the lessons being taught. This lack of attention is evident in the results of the review assignments, quizzes, or exams. This leads to a sense of failure for the instructors.

The same is true for e-learning; when learners do not pay attention, it reflects on the assessments and overall lack of improvement in the performance of the learner. An article ‘Why can’t students just pay attention’, throws light on the importance of increasing the attention span of the learners. Though the solutions are aligned more towards traditional learning, they can all be suitably tweaked for e-learning and make the technology-aided medium more effective.

Do We Need Virtual Reality In Education?  

Do We Need Virtual Reality In Education?   | The Distance Learning Revolution | Scoop.it

It goes without saying that we do not communicate in the same manner as we did 10 years ago, not to mention that the rapid growth in this sphere is hard to tackle if we go in the past decade of the last century, when the mobile phones were hardly used. The benefits of our age bring the virtual reality and the gadgets that we can use to have an insight into the possibilities the computer-generated simulation of a three-dimensional image or environment can bring us. Since we can interact in a seemingly real or physical way using special electronic equipment, helmet with a screen inside, or gloves fitted with sensors, we can say that we have made a step towards the illusionary world in three dimensions. But what about using virtual reality in education?

Transcend the Classroom with Virtual Place-Based Learning | The Distance Learning Revolution | Scoop.it
Simulation-based learning allows us to play in a highly immersive environment that reflects aspects of the real world. In virtual simulations, we can explore and create with much lower stakes than we would encounter in the real world. Questions of “What if?” flourish in a virtual simulation as we create and experience new possibilities with increasing realism. With smartphones making access to virtual reality easier and easier, virtual simulations can now become part of place-based learning in the classroom.
