The use of virtual reality opens up many new opportunities in education and training, which are too complex, time-consuming or expensive with traditional approaches, if not all at the same time. There are five main advantages of using VR technologies in education.
Visibility. Using 3D-graphics, you can detail the chemical processes up to the atomic level. And nothing forbids to go deeper still further and to show how inside the atom the nuclear division is divided before the nuclear explosion. Virtual reality is capable not only of giving information about the phenomenon itself, but also demonstrating it with any degree of detail.
Security. Operation on the heart, the management of a high-speed train, space shuttle, safety in case of fire — you can immerse the viewer in any of these circumstances without the slightest threat to life.
Involvement. Virtual reality allows you to change scenarios, influence the course of an experiment or solve a mathematical problem in a playable and understandable form. During a virtual lesson, you can see the world of the past through the eyes of a historical character, go on a journey through the human body in a microcapsule or choose the right course on the Magellan ship.
Focusing. The virtual world, which will surround the viewer from all sides to all 360 degrees, will allow you to concentrate entirely on the material and not be distracted by external stimuli.
Virtual lessons. A first-person view and a sense of being present in the painted world is one of the main features of virtual reality. This allows you to conduct lessons entirely in virtual reality.
Modern technologies, despite the long path of development, are still young, but still the virtual reality is the next big leap in the development of the sphere of education. And in the near future we will see many interesting discoveries in this area.
