How Virtual Reality can enhance learning – The IT Research Lab @ Monash University, Melbourne

This video is about a new facility at Monash University that would make for an intriguing and exciting addition to the more typical classrooms and teaching spaces in primary and secondary schools.

It was designed for the IT department and is a Virtual Reality (VR) facility that is used to research how VR may improve our understanding and use of data.

The key points we talk about:

  • What tools are needed to navigate virtual worlds that are different to the physical world.
  • How does VR help us understand scale.
  • Why schools should have VR labs.
  • Finding balance between virtual worlds and the physical world
