Once reserved for frivolity, virtual and augmented reality are now being used in practical ways to teach schoolchildren, construction workers and even surgeons.
The use of technology in teaching has become the norm, but some businesses and universities have taken it to the next level through virtual and augmented reality.
VR and AR, once best known for fun applications like the Pokémon Go app and Snapchat filters, are increasingly being used alongside traditional training. A recent study of 151 adults by Neuro-Insight, Mindshare UK and Zappar found AR had a significantly positive impact on both attention span and information retention.
The Flexible Learning Strategies for Out of School Children programme is a UNESCO initiative with the aim of supporting inclusive and quality education for every child in the region. Our goal is to reach the remaining and most vulnerable 5% of children with no access to education in the region and support quality improvements in learning for every child.
