From elementary schools to the modern workplace, the traditional model of learning is evolving. Studies show people learn best through play, participation and problem-solving. It’s called active learning, and virtual reality embodies this type of training. Instead of the classroom setting where people read, listen or watch, smart educators encourage people to act. By repeating physical tasks, motor skills are refined. Immersive exposure to an environment removes the fear of the unknown. If the goal of any lesson is to prepare someone to face challenges, the best preparation is practice.
Because VR is so immersive, training in virtual reality is extremely effective. Information retention rates in virtual reality blow away any other type of learning: people remember up to 80% even a year later. Click below to read more about active learning, and find out the science behind the data.
