Help to positively change the world by

Educating Africa through VR

Google Expeditions Kits

VR and education are a natural fit.

Virtual reality helps you experience things that can’t be experienced any other way.

Enter into the microcosm of biology, chemistry, electronics and nanotechnology. Expand to the macrocosm of planetary mechanics and cosmology.

Participate in works of art, a physical adventure. Sculpt sound and paint with light.

Feel a fractal form, math made manifest.

VR opens minds.

Technology grows.

Each passing year brings better hardware, more content and greater immersion.

Educational VR gives you the incredible opportunity of working with something magical.

Imagine when the medium of film was new. The new breed of filmmakers had audiences that were receptive and open. They had the social responsibility and privilege of defining how movies would shape the world.

The impact of VR on education will be as profound as that of film.

Make a difference to 1.3 billion people!

Educational VR in the classroom is available today.

Right now, there is an affordable educational VR platform supporting a large library of content freely available to assist in the classroom. That platform is Google Expeditions.

There are VR expeditions for coral reefs, volcanoes, careers, space, biology, anatomy, history, museums and many more.

Each learner gets a smartphone based VR headset and the expeditions are run by the teacher from an Android tablet.

The advantages are affordability, ease of use and available high-quality content.

Improving education is the greatest social contribution we can make.

Our VR Explorer Kits have everything you need to get started. Call 083 733 5133 now to arrange a demo.

Please, we need your help to get these into classrooms across the continent

South African Educational VR Content

Another great educational tool is the Google StreetView app. The app supports Google Cardboard and other VR glasses so all the content can be viewed in full 360° high resolution splendour.

Take a look at the Discover South Africa collection on StreetView. This is a collection of 360° panoramas of hikes through all of South Africas’ national parks.

The link above will take you to a web browser interface, suitable for viewing on a computer.

To view this collection in the StreetView phone app, open the app and search for “Pilanesberg”. Go there, then select “Featured” at the top of the screen.

At the bottom of the screen, you will see “Featured collections in this area”. If you slide that slider up, you should see the “Discover South Africa” collection. If not, pinch zoom out until you can see the whole of Pilanesberg on the map. The collection should then appear, allowing you to open it and go into VR view.

You can follow the hiking trails in VR by pulling the Cardboard trigger while aiming along the path.

If you are interested in using these or other VR apps in the classroom or university environment, please call me (Richard McAdam 083 733 5133) to discuss what options and possibilities are available and perhaps to set up a demo.
