Our focus is K-12, Higher Education, and institutions looking to deploy at scale.
We call this the “VEDX Classroom.”
There is a massive reorganization of curriculum under way and I am excited to see it through. When technology enters the education space to increase efficiency, people benefit, but when an entirely new window to learning is introduced then it becomes the catalyst that changes everything.
For example, imagine a history class with a classical syllabus – learn from a chapter about the civil war, remember facts, watch a re-enactment, and take a test. Now imagine virtual reality comes to the classroom – no test, no memorization, no chapter. The learner sees that this week is on Civil War. They jump in with their peers to the headsets and witness the actual debates between our founders, then they are transported to a room for them to debate what they heard in Delaware, then they are transported to the battlefield and then to a family dinner table to talk about the dangers their nation faced.
AFTER the experience, the facilitator has the learners discuss their experiences and talk about what they learned. The review (traditionally a test) is about the learner’s experience. The learning is deep, remembered, reflected, and discussed. Having briefly taught in the classroom, I believe that deep learning comes from engagement and experience. Moreover, I think we will see a redefining of roles - ‘student’ to ‘learner’ and ‘teacher’ to ‘educational facilitator’ in our future societies.
This is a disruption of industrial education and I look forward to helping you on this journey.=
