VR in Education for Ages 11 to 14 years

At this age range, educational strategies should provide students with opportunities to acquire knowledge, learn new skills, develop existing ones, and promote a love of learning. Using VR in education can allow students to grow and develop into well-rounded people who have great emotional intelligence, excellent creative thinking skills and have a secure foundation of knowledge. Here are just some of the examples of how ClassVR can be used in the classroom:

Emotional Intelligence

Struggling with test anxiety is something that many students face every day. As a teacher, it is important to provide tools and coping strategies that students can apply to a test situation or use in everyday life.

VR use case:
Using ClassVR, students can be transported away from the classroom and into calming places like sandy beaches or snow-covered mountains to help tune out anxieties and refocus their attention. These experiences help build student emotional intelligence skills to allow them to imagine their happy place in the future.

Inclusive Teaching

Pre-learning and pre-exposure to a topic can help students develop curiosity, interest and introduce key vocabulary before they start to learn the new material.

VR use case:
Using ClassVR as a pre-learning tool provides students with VR content to help them understand what to expect and a solid foundation for deeper learning. The immersive content is designed to be engaging and trigger initial thought processes around the topic which can be used in whole class discussions.
