Virtual reality headsets to be used in 10,000 schools in Europe

In 2021 Polish Ministry of Education has launched a major subsidy program for Polish primary schools with a approximate budget of 250 million USD. Schools taking part in this program can buy new technologies such as 3D printers, education robots, soldering stations, VR and other hi-tech equipment. 

The aim of the program is to provide students with opportunity to learn programming, modelling and prepare them for the challenges of the modern world. Edutech Expert is a qualified supplier for this program and has already provided educational equipment to more than 1200 schools. As Virtual Reality is becoming more and more popular among schools Edutech Expert company is looking to expand its market position by cooperating with DPVR and Veative and providing ready to go VR system with interactive educational content.

DPVR has signed an exclusive agreement with Edutech Expert which is one of the leaders in the Polish education and training industry and together with Veative has decided to develop a new VR learning device called eduVR.

This all in one VR headset is specifically designed for students in schools, preloaded with more than 500+ education modules suitable for grades 6 to 12 for subjects like Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Each module contains;

  • A learning objective outline,
  • An active learning session focused on a key concept,
  • Formative assessment.
 

It also has a learning management platform that offers an easy-to-use online classroom and content management system which makes it incredibly easy for teachers and administrators to access several different resources to monitor or help students with their progress.

Apart from the breadth of content with its simple management system, this combination of VR hardware and software can help schools to reduce their vacancy rates by giving students access to learning materials from anywhere, they don’t have to be in the classroom.

Students are able to immediately test what they have learned after each lesson, consolidate their memories and re-check what they don’t understand. Teachers can adjust their physical lesson content to suit the needs of their students after reviewing the results from the online learning modules. This is another example of how Virtual Reality is changing traditional ways of educating and shifting typical one-way teaching techniques into a collaborative, interactive way of students learning in groups.

The eduVR has a wide array of benefits vs other systems available on the market as outlined in the table below

This solution will be rolled out to schools in Poland, but can easily be adapted for other countries or situations. The idea can also be adapted to corporate or enterprise scenarios just as easily. As a supplier of equipment, DPVR also provides customized services for various products, helping enterprises overcome the problems from software and hardware.

"“Our mission is to support Polish schools with advice and provide them best possible education solutions. We want to change Polish educational system for better, so that students will be prepared when they finish education and will face the job market. Virtual Reality will be definitely one of the areas that will be developing in future and this is the reason why teachers and students have to learn and use this technology.” ​

He also underlined that interactive content provided by Veative is the most advanced and has the biggest library with over 500+ education modules that are in line with Polish curriculum.
