Virtual reality (VR) is on the rise. Less than a quarter of educators (23 percent) have tried out VR in their schools so far, and most of that effort has been in science (52 percent) vs. history (29 percent), engineering (20 percent) or any other subject. However, the majority of educators (55 percent) surveyed said they do expect to use VR in the future, because they believe it could excite “students to learn” (68 percent), encourage “creativity” (39 percent), make “difficult concepts easier” (32 percent) and reduce the cost for “field trips” (23 percent). Those are a few of the results that came out of a survey about VR recently sponsored by Extreme Networks, which sells networking hardware, software and services. According to the company, people from 349 schools participated.
