We believe that students should be excited about learning. We believe that students should love going to school. The notion that schooling must be repetitive, dry and boring is just unacceptable to us.
That’s why WiloStar3D focuses on 3D virtual learning tools. 3D virtual education is fun and engaging. Our educational 3D worlds immerse and engage students in the same way that today’s best video games grab and keep the attention of players. The main difference is that our worlds are not a video game. Our fully accredited educational curricula and worlds have been carefully crafted and developed for k-12 students. Our entire educational program has been designed with students in mind.
3D virtual education can enrich any learning experience. For homeschooling families, it has the added benefit of helping the students avoid feelings of isolation. Students get that “really attending school” feeling by running around our 3D campus and assuming the identities of our highly expressive student avatars. They attend virtual classrooms and participate in group projects. They really do “go to school” every morning, and they love it.
While traditional education establishments have often resisted use of technology as part of the learning process, clinging to traditional teaching methods, it is our opinion that traditional education can and should coexist with 3D virtual education. Indeed, with technology and Web 2.0 becoming such an integral part of everyday life in the last decade, traditional schools are warming up to the idea of incorporating technology and immersive 3D learning into their curricula.3D worlds can easily be incorporated into any curricula, immediately turning “boring” into “fun.” What better way to get our children excited about the process of learning and raise lifelong learners?
