Class on the Moon at WXRF19
Education and pedagogy, a collective experience
World XR strongly believes in the power of XR and education, it is a pillar of our organization.
As part of our forum in 2019, forty students from Rosey and Le Regent College came together for a History lesson – but not of the usual kind – taught within the classroom walls.
Transported to the moon by Oculus Quests, Professor Foreman, Le Rosey’s IB, was able to explain the Cold War and the symbolic pertinence of the Moon landing to students whilst they “walked” on its surface.
The students were in 2 different cities and able to experience it in real-time, embodied through their avatars. This technological world premiere marks the start of several learning methods.
