Virtual reality (VR) headsets give students an opportunity to explore lands far away. Students can go to the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. without traveling a single mile through virtual reality.
VR headsets are essentially head mounted computer displays. When students move their heads, their screen follows by using a technology called the six degrees of freedom (6Dof), giving them the feeling that they are actually there, looking around, exploring, traveling, and learning.
The destination is chosen as a class. Each student puts on his/her own VR headseat and follows along with the storyline provided by the teacher. As a class, students go room to room together, going over the narrative for that room for that particular destination.
