Avantis Launches a Free Social Engagement Tool for Student Well-being
We know first-hand the impact school closures are having on students worldwide and we asked ourselves, what can we do to help? Our dedicated team has been working tirelessly to help create a solution to combat isolation and improve student well-being and today, we are able to make that solution available to all schools worldwide.
We’re so proud to announce the launch of VRroom, a free social engagement tool for student well-being.
What is VRroom?
Free to all schools throughout 2021, VRroom uses brand-new VR collaborative technology to transport students into engaging spaces, called VRrooms to communicate as a group or even a one-on-one level. From a virtual playground or a sun-soaked beach, to a fun and exciting pirate ship or space station, students can explore and be together all from behind VRroomies, fun character-based avatars.
There’s so many VRroomies for your students to choose from, you can be a pirate, a gingerbread man, a knight, you name it! VRroom creates a much more comfortable way for students to interact, helping to boost their confidence and remove anxiety associated with video conferencing tools.
Enhance student well-being with VR technology
Throughout the pandemic, 76% of parents and carers are worried their children are lonely due to school closures. Every school day, students are missing vital social interactions with their classmates, such as recess and lunchtimes, which is having a detrimental impact on student well-being. We’ve launched VRroom in a bid to combat this, by allowing teachers to bring students together into safe and engaging virtual spaces, where they can communicate and interact from anywhere with a web browser – no headset required!
It’s so simple to use and you’ll be set up in a couple of minutes. Simply create an account, choose a VRroom, share the link with your students and you’re VRrooming!
