Sometimes we touch on a subject lightly in one podcast, only to expand on it in great length in a future episode. This is one of those cases. Previous guests, Rob and Dave for Earth & Sky, come back to dig deeper into education in VR.

Rev VR Podcast – Episode 103

Education is hard. Education in VR will be even harder. Will teachers quickly how to use this technology to bring their classes to magical worlds, or will we have to re-educate them to understand the implications of this new technology? How long will it take until there is a large quantity of hardware available to the schools? There are a lot of questions that are unanswered, and it may be too early to predict how things will unfold.

Should children even be using VR, and at what age is it okay to introduce them to it? Unintentionally, the conversation swerved in that direction. There are several differing answers to that, and we dig into them.

It is easy to hear the excitement in Rob and Dave’s voices as they talk about educational VR. They look forward to seeing how it all pans out, and hope to be involved in the evolution of it with their own projects.

Thanks to Rob and Dave for being on the show again and talking about such an important topic. Feel free to reach out to them via email.

    Great show guys… on Rev’s school ‘show and tell’, can you get a maker of the cardboard-clones to donate a few which could be taken home (or would that run into problems of not having enough for everybody)? I think that cardboard is good, as many of the kids will already have (or have access to) devices which will be sufficiently powerful.

    Rather than just making consumers, you could introduce things like Web-VR and GLAM.

    Obviously we’re at the start of a new era, and things will change drastically in the coming years. Most of all, have fun!
