Virtual Reality Learning

Key Takeaways

  • With advancements in technology come innovative ways of learning.
  • People are learning more quickly through virtual reality and extended reality than through traditional classroom learning.
  • We’ll likely see more of these types of learning offerings in the coming years.

Is the glass half full or half empty? Throughout our lives, we’ve all been in situations where we’ve had to decide whether to view things in a positive or negative light. Education can be one of these situations.

Specifically, when the first day of school rolls around, we all start off at 100% in our grades and hope to stay there. As the school year progresses, though, that grade likely decreases from 100%. There’s pressure not to fall too far from that 100%. It can elicit a feeling of having nothing to gain and everything to lose – that’s a half-empty glass indeed!

The CEO of Talespin, Kyle Jackson, points out that the real world is quite different when it comes to learning. In the real world, we start at 0% when we’re learning something new. We may have no prior knowledge of a topic, meaning anything we learn only increases that score. We can only go up – the glass is now half full!

And when it comes to learning in the real world, Kyle Jackson and his company are embracing technology to help increase those scores, using extended reality (XR), which is a combination of virtual reality (VR), headsets, and the real world.

XR combines real and virtual environments and studies are showing that learning occurs four times faster via XR and VR than it does in traditional classroom environments. It also helps people learn one-and-a-half times faster than e-learning does.

In addition to learning more quickly, the benefits of this type of learning are that you have your own room and your own teacher. You can go from 0% to a level of competency in a new skill so much more quickly using this technology.

This is a new way of looking at school from a practical standpoint. It may be a way to help you get into your next profession or vocation, and we’ll likely see a lot more of it in the near future. Until next time, enjoy.
