Inmates Using VR

Adjusting back into the real world has always been a challenge for inmates who have been incarcerated for the majority of their lives. Some prisons have adopted VR programs to guide their transition and facilitate their second chances. This is just another example of how Virtual Reality is changing the way that we operate as a society. #VR #virtualreality #prison #VRtrainging #aNewWay #immersion #immerseyourself #VICENews #360video #welcometothefuture

Experiential Learning

According to experiments carried out by professor Ann Schlosser at the University of Washington, “The immersive nature of VR means users remember content they interact with in virtual scenarios much more vividly than with any other medium.” Read about how VR is helping people learn new languages using the method referred to as “experiential learning.” #coolstuff #VR #virtualreality #education #learning #education #bilingual #buffalo #immersion #immerseyourself #welcometothefuture https://qz.com/1159167/learning-a-language-in-vr-is-less-embarrassing-than-irl/

VR Gives New Perspectives

Take a look at how immersive technologies are helping people gain understanding of what it is like to live life with symptoms associated with aging. Medical students, among others, are using this kind of virtual experience to better understand how to engage others with more empathy. VR helps prepare students to feel what their patients confront, and enables them to respond more effectively to patients’ issues, and hopefully improve their diagnosing of patient conditions. #virtual #experience #VR #virtualreality #medical #oldage #empathy #immersion #immerseyourself #understanding
