Innovative teaching approaches: Virtual reality in the classroom

Technology continues to play an increasingly important role in both our personal and professional lives, especially as we dive deeper into the Fourth Industrial revolution. Just about every industry is immersing itself in technology – including the education sector. Today’s students – or digital natives ��� have been raised in an environment where the internet and technology has been tightly woven into the fabric of their lives. Despite this, not all education institutions have evolved with the times to embrace digital learning practices that can help facilitate students’ learning. Teaching tomorrow’s workforce in the digital era can be made more fruitful by tapping into the rise of new technologies, which present universities with a wealth of opportunities to facilitate students’ learning. New technologies encompass different breeds of technology such as virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), gamification, mobile learning applications and online learning platforms, among others.
