Virtual Reality Education In India
The education system in our country is in urgent need of reforms. The government through the Right To Education Act has taken some steps in laying out guidelines for preschools and how they should be run. However, when it comes to education content, the quality of teachers, the infrastructure of schools and introduction of digital learning, we lag behind globally accepted standards by quite a distance. It is high time we introduce the concepts of virtual reality education in India as also the concept of augmented reality education.
Education has to be made interesting and engaging
There is a definite need to introduce virtual reality education in India right at the preschool and nursery levels. Children will surely get bored when they have to listen to a monologue from a teacher who is not well equipped to teach. The result is they lose interest and focus.
What is virtual reality education?
It is a concept that brings alive textbook content in the form of 3D images and immersions. The cost of VR headsets and devices is costly at the moment but can be brought down if the government is serious about introducing this in schools at the earliest.
The consequence of VR education is such that children and teachers get to enjoy interactive learning sessions that are fruitful. Teachers too learn a lot when imparting education in this manner. Dry and mundane topics in the text books are brought alive through virtual reality and augmented reality.
While virtual reality transports the viewer to another world altogether, augmented reality takes into consideration the existing environment of the viewer and offers an enhanced experience incorporating aspects of the room and scenario.
The strengthening of the teacher – student bond
Today the teacher is having a lot of problems managing a big class and is unable to devote attention to students individually. The portion or subject content to be covered is also very vast. She also has to do a lot of paper correction and other tasks that take up her time. Digital learning will get rid of many of the routine tasks, leaving her free to concentrate on children and this will definitely improve the teacher-student bonding.
Moreover, virtual reality education in India, by its very nature is so immersive that children will look forward to the learning process instead of turning away from it.
