Learning is definitely qualitatively and quantitatively better if it is supplemented with visual aids. It is even better if the learner is given an option to immerse in the situation he is trying to understand and learn.
Well, in not so distant future, VR is going to pave its way into the classrooms. Google for Education has announced that it will add Google Expeditions and Google Classrooms with TES. TES aims to help teachers to find, create and plan their digital assets to supplement their classroom teaching.
Now, teachers can scan and download free content from the Google portal within TES.
The Google Expeditions initiative has been giving kids more immersive experiences with their lesson content via 360 media content viewed on the Google Cardboard platform. Students are able to dive into environments and get a clearer image of topics than 2D textbooks can offer.
