What do you think of when you hear Virtual Reality? Games? The future? Movies? What about science? A new simulation has been released allowing a user to interact first-hand with expensive and exclusive science technology by simply owning a phone and a virtual reality headset that can be priced as low as $20. Rather than just appealing to visual and auditory learners, a kinesthetic learning style is also touched upon. Instead of hearing about how to do something, you get to try it yourself. This innovation could possibly change the way we learn completely and have a huge positive impact on science education and science itself.
Michael Bodekaer: This virtual lab will revolutionize science class
Virtual reality is no longer part of some distant future, and it's not just for gaming and entertainment anymore. Michael Bodekaer wants to use it to make quality education more accessible. In this refreshing talk, he demos an idea that could revolutionize the way we teach science in schools.
