What if students could learn History by visiting stunning ancient ruins in Greece or significant war sites in Vietnam, together with their teacher, without leaving the classroom? With Mixed Reality (MR) this is possible, providing an immersive and more effective learning experience to children and young students. Let’s see a quick video and this will answer you “how?”.
Experience the world of Mixed Reality with DIYguru
There are two ways Mixed Reality can be used in the classroom. The first is more traditional, it involves a desktop set up in which students explore a virtual environment using computer, keyboard, mouse, or some other input device, for example a wireless controller: this is properly defined as Virtual Reality.
The second is what today we use to identify as actual MR: it is the fully immersive experience that requires students to wearan HMD (head mounted display) and motion controller, through which they can interact with an environment produced by a mix of real and virtual worlds, where physical and digital objects co-exist.
Thanks to this Mixed Reality, students can touch and manipulate objects generating a greater understanding of them, and it this doesn’t stop here. Students can also interact with data sets, complex formulae and abstract concepts which could be more difficult to understand through teacher’s verbal instructions. For many students, in fact, learning by doing is easier than learning by listening.
This second kind of Mixed Reality provides a more engaging, fun and effective learning experience than the first one and, it goes without saying, than all the other traditional educational methods. And this is true for any subject
