We love online homeschooling and believe that it’s very suitable for many types of students, including gifted students and special needs students. But online homeshooling has the potential to be just as dry and boring as traditional schooling! This is why we are so excited about 3D immersive education for K-12 students.
3D immersive education is a virtual reality and game-based learning method. It combines interactive 3D graphics, game and simulation technology, virtual reality, voice chat, Web cameras and rich digital media with collaborative online course environments and classrooms to give students a wonderful sense of “being there” even when they learn from a distance. 3D immersive education is fun and exciting for children, and it provides both teachers and students with the ability to connect and communicate in a way that greatly enhances the distant learning experience.
Traditionally, 3D immersive platforms were available only to university students, but today, online schools such as WiloStar3D are offering next-generation immersive education in the form of a fully accredited 3D immersive learning curriculum for K-12 students.
Unlike traditional computer-based learning systems, which can be repetitive and boring, Immersive Education is fun – in fact it’s just as fun as a video game, only it’s educational and provides your child with a fully accredited online learning experience that can take them all the way through high school and allow them to continue to college. While old-world educators often dismiss the importance of “fun” in learning, next-generation educators know better. When learning is fun and exciting, children do much better academically. They are more challenged, and material retention rates are significantly higher.
Immersive Education is very suitable for intelligent, independent students and for creative and visual learners. It supports self-directed learning while also offering social interaction in the form of collaborative group-based learning environments and 3D classrooms.
To us, Immersive Education is simply a tool – a wonderful tool to get students excited about learning.
