Novel technologies are on a mission to make the learning space a fun place to be after all, as quoted by Benjamin Franklin 'an investment in knowledge pays the best interest.'
FREMONT, CA: Technology has been growing fast and noticeably influencing different aspects of life, such as education. The educational institutions are changing its traditional methodologies of teaching. Virtual reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) is on the verge to completely transform the educational space for both teachers and students. Bridging the twin technologies and education can bring attractive and effective teaching and learning experiences. These innovative technologies will help students learn interactively like never before as it is not limited to students of a specific age group.
AR in education will soon affect the conventional learning process. The technology can change the timing and location of studying, to introduce new and additional ways and methods. Capabilities of AR technology may make classes more engaging and apprehendable. One of the most significant benefits of AR in development and learning is that it does not necessitate any investment concerning hardware. Using AR in smartphones is easily accessible now as it is easier for students to go through their smartphones and access any information they want.
VR can entirely change the experience of education. It is going to be used in school, beginning from the first grade to college. Using VR headsets, students can see the immersive content of each subject. A 360-degree view of every content gives students a more pragmatic feel as they find themselves as a part of the virtual environment. Interaction with VR content helps them experience the subject with profound detail. When students are too engrossed in the virtual world, they cannot be distracted by the real world, which results in improving their concentration power.
With these novel technologies, teachers can grasp the attention of the students helping them to concentrate and motivate their subjects better. It will provide a different exposure to the students as well as teachers. The twin technologies visualize its subjects and sophisticated concepts to obtain practical skills. AR and VR can modify the education space faster than it could have been imagined earlier.
