With virtual reality students can visit places not

practical, or even possible in real life, all from the

safety of the classroom. Imagine exploring the inside

of a blood vessel, the structure of an atom, the depths

of the ocean, or the surface of the moon. With Virtual

Reality, places can be explored as if you were actually

there, and students can experience and interact with

creatures they will likely never see in their lifetimes.

With virtual reality, we can put children in simulated

dangerous and compromising situations, in places

they should never have to experience in the real

world, and from this they can learn empathy, safety

and emotion, and gain an understanding that is simply

unobtainable from traditional media. Imagine the

immersion, understanding and emotional experience

a student could gain from standing in the trenches

during World War 1?
