Varwin was invited to be a part of Learning Development with VR projects, an experimental program developed by the Moscow Innovation Agency in cooperation with School №1329.
Because the Varwin Education package includes software and didactic materials to help teachers quickly learn the platform, they were able to jump right in. Varwin Education also includes a ready-made study plan for use during lessons. This material helps teachers get off to a great start and eliminate any feelings of being overwhelmed by the new technology.
«Five lessons from the training program for teachers were enough for me to start working out projects with students,» — underlines Egor Alexeyevich Morozov, teacher of IT science and tutor of extended education.
After a few lessons from the training program, each teacher is capable of creating projects that can be used in his or her own teaching practice. And the program for children is built in such a way that students can view the results of their own work from the very first lesson.
Boris Volgin, a 7th-grade student, says that he is motivated to continue studying because the platform is easy to use and allows him to quickly see the results of his work. Proof that VR design in the learning process can hold the students’ attention at maximum levels.
Classes in the VR Club lasted for one year. The club helped strengthen student interest and motivated them to continue their studies the next year. One of their Physical Experiment projects can be viewed in the screenshots below.
