Success Stories  


Designed by teachers for teachers, virtual reality empowers faculty. It helps to create an ideal learning environment where students explore and discover as teachers assist and guide.  It focuses on students rather than placing burdens on teachers.  Teachers’ time is freed up, allowing more time to be spent with students and supervising the learning environment.


It is a powerful new way for teachers to command student attention and present information.  Because the students are immersed in virtual reality with a headset, there are no distractions to learning.  Students are totally focused with no unruly behavior.


Teachers select virtual reality programs to complement existing curriculum plans.  virtual reality programs are always aligned to state and national standards, allowing teachers to easily integrate virtual reality into their curricula while keeping existing tools and frameworks.


Below are white papers, guides, and strategies about virtual reality and teaching.
