Virtual Reality Learning: A Technological Venture In Education

Virtual Reality Learning

The New Year brings exciting changes, new developments and optimistic approaches to what the future may hold. Students in particular are eagerly waiting the opportunity to experience new changes in the classroom outside of essay writing. With classroom study never lacking in development, we wanted to take a look at how Virtual Reality has evolved in education and how it's used as an effective learning tool in today's classrooms.

In keeping with the theme of interactive learning (which is where Virtual Reality Learning comes in), we've designed and created the below animated infographic for you to enjoy. In a fun animated design, the infographic outlines how Virtual Reality in education has evolved in recent years, how VR in education has proved to be the most effective learning method amongst other technologies, the focus on cognitive development, the traditional classroom compared to the virtual classroom, as well as some great statistics!

If you like the gifographic, please feel free to share it with your own readers or share with your friends as well! Please just credit to If animation isn't your thing, we've also included a link to a static infographic version at the end of this blog as well.

VR Education

Virtual Reality(VR) technology has been present in one form or another for a number of years now and has slowly but surely been edging its way into the education system. Being the most immersive modern technology, the latest developments in Virtual Reality have changed the face of education by becoming an effective supplement to traditional learning methods. With the use of Virtual Reality headsets, the future of education is now! Whether you've never heard about VR before or you're already aware of its benefits, make sure to check out our animated infographic below.

Virtual Learning Environment

The Virtual Learning Environment is a combination of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. With VR Learning slowly working its way into the classroom in recent years, the Virtual Learning Environment has primarily focused on cognitive development for students. The main areas of this development being language, numerical understanding, comprehensive improvement, strengthening concept development and classroom engagement.

Did you know...

29% of the secondary schools in the UK have decided to join the Virtual Learning Environment programme?

26% of those secondary schools have actually implemented the Virtual Learning Environment programme? And

9% of the primary schools in the UK have adopted the VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) programme?

Traditional Classroom Vs Virtual Classroom

How is the traditional classroom different from the virtual classroom? Where traditional classrooms focus on textbook reading, an instructional method of study and less engagement, the virtual classroom helps to surround the students with simulated environments, objects and people, and encourages them to be part of the information and truly make their studies come to life.

​Helping to bridge the real and digital world, Virtual Learning turns every opportunity into a reality! 39% of the students who enjoy the Virtual Learning Environment the most are members of the 6-10 age group and are learning in ever increasing ways though Virtual Reality Classes.

Virtual Reality In The Classroom

When Virtual Reality was first seriously implemented in 2015. Since then VR has evolved quite considerably and now an increasing number of classrooms are implementing this digital medium for their own students to experience. In 2017, Virtual Reality evolved into a new form, Augmented Reality, which brings virtual virtual reality into real life environments. Technology development within education and classrooms themselves is now more exciting than ever.

Let's take a look at exactly how Realtime Virtuality has evolved in education...
