Moving forward, technology will continue to play a bigger and bigger role in the future of learning. It’s incredibly important for us to embrace this new technology within the education sector in order to leverage its full potential when it comes to student engagement and learning outcomes.
VR (virtual reality) and AR (augmented reality) are two groundbreaking forms of technology that are already providing revolutionary methods of engaging learners and activating their cognitive abilities in new and promising ways. These technologies have both the potential to enable more effective memory retention, as well as to aid students in achieving their learning outcomes more quickly.
