Virtual & Augmented Reality in SEND Education

Use ClassVR to provide distinctive teaching approaches to engage and support your students


VR in Education for SEND Students

Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) can impact each child's ability to learn differently. Using virtual reality, teachers can create personalised learning or regulation environments to meet the needs of every student in creative, innovative and fun ways. Here are just some of the examples of how ClassVR can be used in SEND education:

Emotional Regulation

Supporting students who are overstimulated or are in overstimulated environments is important to reduce the likelihood of the individual becoming heightened or a crisis occurring in the classroom.

VR use case:
Using ClassVR, teachers can upload an array of 360-images or videos that support the needs of each individual student. The immersive experience eases the students and allows them to return to the classroom able to focus and learn.

Building Confidence

Visiting a new environment for the first time, going on school trips and transitioning throughout a school can be stressful for SEND students, especially for those who are autistic.

VR use case:
Using ClassVR and CoSpaces, teachers can upload personalised 360-degree videos of a new environment, where students can explore, build confidence and become familiar with the environments before even leaving the classroom.

New Experiences

For students with limited mobility, some trips or activities their peers experience may be inaccessible or impractical.

VR Use Case:
Using ClassVR, students can be immersed in previously inaccessible places and even experience the same opportunities as their peers by uploading 360-images and videos directly from the classroom and reliving them whenever they choose.
