An Insider’s View into the Edtech Market for Virtual or Augmented Reality | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"Reading from textbooks and filling out worksheets simply doesn’t bring the material to life for most students. Teachers and students would both find the classroom curriculum more engaging if there was a better way to breathe life into old topics. Unfortunately, most schools lack the time and budget to send classes on more than a few field trips each year. With the invention of more virtual reality edtech, teachers may have more tricks up their sleeve to garner this much-needed enthusiasm for learning."
