Immersive education counters the systematic barriers that impede the application of effective education strategy in Nigeria and opens up new horizons for enabling sustained access to quality education”

The prospect of cutting-edge, customizable solutions tailored for specific training environments is exceptionally efficient and effective. The onset of technology has its pros and cons. While access to specialized information has increased, distractions are on the rise too. VRXOne’s Immersive Education Program claims to be helping to raise the bar on classroom learning, bringing back lost attention to classrooms.
“The bottom line is that Immersive learning presents a medium that makes learning an enjoyable process, rather than a cumbersome one,” says Dr. Sana Farid, CEO and Co-Found of VRXOne. “The ingenious experiences help students understand intricate concepts easily and also promote the practical industry-level applications of theoretical knowledge.”
According to VRXOne, Google set out to make the impossible possible: assimilate all the world’s information and present it on a single platform. Google Expeditions is the result. This project successfully impacted the lives of over 8 million students.
Expeditions aid teachers teach better by spiking curiosity in students about lessons that are otherwise perceived as boring.
The ambition is to leverage this groundwork that Google has laid for the future of education with a goal of making Google Expedition accessible to millions of students by providing a comprehensive program in classrooms.
As VRXOne is the official Google Expeditions partner (in the regions of the Middle East, Africa, and the Sub Continent), the premium and copyrighted content that Google offers is now provided as a first-hand experience to a myriad of schools. Another feature is the ability to create virtual field trips where students can get transported to all kinds of new locations for learning and exploration – be it the Himalayas or the coronary artery of the human heart.
Students with intellectual or cognitive disabilities often struggle with communication, focus, and concentration. Fortunately, Immersive Learning is here to turn the tables around. VR helps create safe environments for students with special needs to improve instrumental motor and intellectual skills. This is the most noteworthy capability of Immersive Learning: Make education accessible to everybody willing to learn.
“The onset of Virtual Reality (VR) means that high-quality education is no longer a luxury that students with special needs can only crave after,” says Farid.
VRXOne is aggressively expanding worldwide to help students and teachers harness the ground-breaking innovation of Immersive Learning. The new target regions are interesting choices for a variety of reasons:
• India is home to the world’s third-largest education system and is a perfect platform to pitch the revolutionizing technology of Immersive Learning and popularize it.
• Egypt welcomes technological advancements into their schooling system. Interestingly, the demand for education is impressive due to the steady population growth. This country has regularly acknowledged education as the sole means of economic and social mobility. Additionally, the culture of embracing change and wanting to evolve will undoubtedly foster the sophisticated onset of Immersive Learning.
• Oman places high emphasis on accessibility to education as all three levels of school are free of charge. This realization of the essence of education will definitely welcome Immersive Learning to improve the teaching and learning efficiencies of schools.
• Pakistan’s constitution has a unique law that provides free and compulsory education to all children between the ages of 5-16 years. This nation is consistently endeavoring to achieve greater success in the education frontier. Spreading awareness about the potential of Immersive Learning could define a whole new perspective to education.
The underlying objective behind this expansion is subtle and crisp: Educate educators to improve the learning experience using immersive learning.
“The geographical expansion to other countries of the Middle East and prominent countries of Asia is bound to exponentially increase the popularity of XR in the field of education.” ◊
