Speaking to The Star, Ackerman said VR was about the learning experience.
“Research shows that if learners are actively involved, engaged in the learning process, they remember content for a longer time. It is easier to see because it is visuals,” she said.
Ackerman said integrating technology into maths and science learning is vital.
“It is extremely important because it gives learners an exiting experience. If you think about your education, you hardly remember anything. When using virtual reality, there is no noise, no distraction. If you put the device on, you are in that world. You are actively involved in the learning experience. The aim is to enhance teaching and learning,” said Ackerman.
