In this interesting article for VirtualiTeach, Steve Bambury, Head of Digital Learning and Innovation across the JESS Dubai schools, addresses the five main barriers to adopting virtual relaity in schools.
I personally think that there are five key barriers to VR integration in schools. Five walls that are usually built from misconception, lack of understanding or fear of the unknown. These are the five common things that school leaders, governors, parents and other key stakeholders will want answers to. They are also the five core areas that an educator looking to embed VR must be prepared to address. As such I hope that I can provide those educators with a little theoretical ammunition to help them bring this transformative technology into their classrooms and start using it to make an impact on learning.
- Lack of understanding
- Cost and return of investment
- Rate of change
- Health and safety
- Benefits to learning
