3. Is VR suitable for everyone?
VR is a powerful experience, and as we use only the best technology the VR we provide is even more impactful. As such, we have guidelines to prevent the experience of VR being in any way negative.
The youngest age we work with is eight, and we are also take a very sensitive and careful approach to working with people living with conditions such as Alzheimer’s Disease, dementia, autism, and associated syndromes. Due to this sensitive and caring approach we have had no serious issues whatsoever and we have worked with thousands of individuals to date.
4, What educational experiences can VR provide?
From an educational persepective VR is an incredible addition to the varied tools available to teachers. We tailor the experience we provide as much as possible to the needs of each school, class, and pupil.
Topics such as geography can be truly brought to life in VR as pupils are able to virtually travel to locations they would otherwise only imagine. We have taken pupils all around the world, inside the Egyptian pyramids, down into a tube station in London during the blitz, into the living room of a family before the attack at Pearl Harbour, and so much more.
Imagine being able to be miniaturised and travel down an artery toward the heart to bring a biology lesson to life.
Imagine pupils holding a flaming torch up to Egyptian hieroglyphics to translate them before their very eyes in real time.
Imagine seeing the battle that pupils have been studying take place right in front of them.
Viarama makes all of these things and so much more possible.
