#58 of the 82 Hottest EdTech Tools of 2017 According to Education Experts –
58. Unimersiv – Virtual Reality Educational Experiences
As nominated by Daniel Christian.
Unimersiv’s mission is to help students of all ages learn faster through virtual reality.
They believe that Virtual Reality can strongly improve the capacity of the human mind to remember the things it learned for a long time.
Unimersiv believe that virtual reality should not only be used for gaming, but also for education. Research has shown students remember 20% of what they hear, 30% of what they see and up to 90% of what they do or simulate. Virtual reality yields the latter scenario impeccably; students can interact with the virtual environment in person and manipulate the various objects within it. This supports “learning by doing” and also results in creativity by constructionism.
