Why book Tablet Academy's VR Workshop workshop for your school?

trip icon

A Virtual Reality Enrichment Day is designed for Key Stage 2 or 3 Pupils but can be adapted to suit other age groups. Pupils will take part in a Virtual Reality experience, which can be used to assist the teaching of a range of curriculum subjects such as Geography, History, Biology, Physics and Engineering.

We discuss the aims of the day, curate appropriate VR content and plan the sessions to focus on the key learning objectives.

The sessions are led by experienced Tablet Academy educators who will guide staff and students through the activity allowing pupils to learn and teachers to observe and learn as well.
