10 Things to Think About When Using VR in Education

Virtual Reality’s entry into the commercial space has generated a lot excitement for gamers but also for educators. After looking for some concrete information about what it looked like to put VR in schools and finding very little, we decided to go ahead and do an exploratory study ourselves. We wondered, “what are some things people should know about putting VR in schools?” In the 2015-2016 school year, we partnered with 7 schools across North America to look at some trends and best practices for using VR in schools, particularly with advanced headsets such as the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, and we learned a great deal. Though more formal examples of our findings are coming soon, we wanted to share some highlights because it turns out,putting VR in schools is quite different from other forms of media.
