Students, especially digital natives of today (generations that grew up with technologies) do not draw the clear line between face-to-face interaction and connecting with their network over gadgets on social media.
How does this apply to integrating VR into our schools and learning communities?
Certainly, content and experiences produced in Virtual Reality bring people together in more engaging and deeply personalized ways. Thanks to this context teachers and students may interact properly regardless if they are both in the same room or miles apart.
For instance, Immersive VR Education can guide all generations through emotional and learning experience of Titanic shipwreck and legacy. With adequate VR content, plenty of history classes can be conducted as audience learns how timelines function and various events are intertwined.
Even healthcare can be disrupted with VR as students learn learn complex surgeries or even see organs in the human body from the inside.
