ClassVR announced as VR Award finalists for 2019
The world’s first Virtual and Augmented Reality set designed specifically for schools, ClassVR from Avantis has been announced as finalists in both the VR Education and Training of the Year category and the Innovative VR Company of the Year category in the VR Awards 2019.
With numerous education awards to its name, this is the first time ClassVR has entered the prestigious international VR Awards which have been created to identify outstanding achievements in VR and continue to celebrate the fantastic work of the VR industry. Recognised for its pioneering use of VR and AR in education and public sector projects around road safety and fire and rescue, ClassVR is finalist for the “Innovative VR Company of the Year”.
ClassVR has also been shortlisted for its outstanding partnership with London Grid for Learning to accelerate Virtual and Augmented Reality learning in more than 3000 UK schools. LGfL is the largest community of schools in the UK, with 97% of London schools counted among their subscribers. The strategic partnership between both organisations was announced last year to give LGfL schools the opportunity to drive outcomes through Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) by using ClassVR technology. ClassVR’s work with 30 key VR champion schools to highlight best practice within the classroom was a key factor in the shortlisting in the “VR Education and Training of the Year” category.
The winners of the 3rd annual VR Awards will be announced from the shortlist at the Awards Ceremony on Monday 11th November 2019.

It’s also fantastic to be able to share this recognition with our VR champion schools that do such a good job of driving the use of VR within their schools on a daily basis.”
