What is virtual reality (VR)?

First things first, you're going to need to know what VR actually is. The clue is in the name - it's the experience of a world that doesn't actually exist. We aren't talking about getting yourself lost in a book or day dreaming about a photo or painting however, even if these technically are also experiencing some sort of virtual reality.

The virtual reality we are talking about is one created by computers that allows you to experience and interact with a 3D world that isn't real by putting on a head-mounted display and some form of input tracking. The display will typically be split between your eyes, creating a stereoscopic 3D effect with stereo sound, and together with the technology and the input tracking, it will create an immersive, believable experience, allowing you to explore the virtual world being generated by the computer.


VR will make you feel like you are there mentally and physically. You turn your head and the world turns with you so the illusion created by whatever world you are in is never lost.

The VR everyone is excited about is the fully-immersive variation because this is the explorable and interactive 3D computer-created world that can take you to places reality might not allow for, be that walking on Mars or driving around the mountains in a sportscar.

The kit

There are lots of devices out there that can give you a virtual reality experience, but few are made specifically for the education sector. Avantis Education have developed a solution for schools - ClassVR - complete with charging case and customisable content. The engaging content available with ClassVR is aligned directly to the curriculum. This works in combination with the structured lesson plans, designed to encourage the imagination of students from all ages.

Each lessons will leave pupils with memories and experiences which help to visualise and understand even the most complex of school subjects.

Book your experience

After attending the VR experience session you can arrange to borrow a set of VR headsets.

Try out this amazing technology with the rest of your class and see how it can really make a lesson engaging. Speak to one of the ICT in Schools team to arrange.
