NATCHEZ – Morgantown Middle School students conducted a hands-on inspection of CLASS VR, an open platform that supports a virtual reality curriculum.
Recently, students in Coach Larry Wesley’s class had the opportunity to experiment with CLASS VR.
Set in approximately 12 Mississippi schools, CLASS VR allows students the opportunity to discover places and things in a unique way.
The software includes more than 500 curriculum subjects, in addition to the flexibility of teachers to add their own lesson plans.
Aljavion Williams said, “I was impressed by the realism of the lessons.”
The students took a virtual tour of Stonehenge, a human eyeball and a human heart.
“Based on the interactions of students in the classroom today, it would be my professional opinion that virtual reality can impact very positively on the educational environment of our students,” Wesley said. “Virtual reality offers them the opportunity to increase engagement and increase knowledge retention for students of all ages. Practical experiences provide students with the opportunity to implement learnings from the world around them and create their own decipherment and analysis products.
