While we don't have robots roaming our streets, we are in a virtual age of AI, AR, VR and automated systems using AI. Perhaps the biggest challenge is for human knowledge to keep up with the current potential of our technology. Something which we hope to continue to improve within our students over the coming years.
Virtual Reality (VR) is set to boom in the next decade and is getting much more attention. It has the potential to create transformational learning experiences for our students - supporting them with knowledge attainment, creative outcomes, visual learning experiences and building empathy and understanding of the wider world.
We are excited to announce that TBS Warsaw are investing and planning to inteegrate VR into creative and transformational lessons in the future - with the aim of enhancing student learning and engagement.
What we don't want is to use tech for tech's sake and therefore we have currently created a teacher Focus Group, who will be looking at VR technology and exploring how to effectively integrate across the school - but with the key focus of supporting engagement and learning.
We hope by Term 3 and beyond, students will be taken to other worlds, right from the heart of the classroom. Whether it is inside a blood cell; in Anne Franks house; in Ancient Egypt; or having a VR meeting with other Nord Anglia students. It presents our teachers and students with a whole new world of possibilities.
