Virtual Reality (VR) Education

World of Comenius, Virtual Reality Biology and Anatomy
This image features students from the Czech Republic participating in a new program called the World of Comenius, which is project that was piloted to enhance student performance and learning through creating a virtual 3-D learning environment (James, 2014). Computers with Oculus Rift DK2 VR headsets and mounted sensors were installed in to several schools in the Czech Republic (James, 2014). The VR headsets allowed the students to actively engage in 3-D learning and this led to students collaborating during the lesson and offering support to one another as they used the new technology. The sensors pick up student movement as they completed tasks that were given by the program. James (2014), blogger, visited the Czech Republic during the time of implementing this new technology and describes this new innovative method of learning as "intuitive" and realistic to real world situations.
