As classes and instruction go virtual, why not tailor the content to be AR/VR enabled to immerse students in the content wherever they are.
Tell us about your idea
Why can't a science, history, even math lesson be done in AR/VR?
Imagine studying the planets and zooming in on Saturn's rings..."seeing" the views from the 7 world wonders...or fractions visualized....imagine watching a space shuttle launch from inside your home. In the digital world, we can make content come alive, not just words in a book or a lesson but an interactive rendition of core curriculum.
Kids have access to digital more than ever before and are familiar with consuming digital content, using devices and need to be immersed in an expanded world and having content displayed in a richer world will only help them understand the curriculum better.
Content could be fixed or portable (mobile device) and hosted such that the content can be walked through, including tips highlighting what's important to note, and consumed anywhere....the result would a rich experience that literally would take a student out of the classroom.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to share this idea.
I'm a parent and have been looking at VR systems for home entertainment and wondered why there isn't educational content like a combination of Leapfrog and Khan's Academy. It would be a fun and memorable way to share the content (across all sites, not just site-specific)
