Virtual Reality Project

The Integration of Virtual Reality in 21st Century Teaching, Learning and Assessment

  • Using virtual reality (VR) headsets and Google Expeditions, students are transported to some of the most fascinating and awe inspiring destinations without ever leaving the classroom.

  • Google Expeditions enables teachers to bring students on virtual trips to places like museums, underwater and outer space.

  • Expeditions are collections of linked virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) content annotated with details, points of interest and questions that make them easy to integrate across the curriculum.

Teachers' Shared Learning

The aim of this cluster is to explore how Virtual Reality (VR) can enhance teaching practices and learner experiences across the curriculum. The teachers involved in the cluster, work collaboratively to find suitable Google Expeditions that support the learner outcomes of the Irish Primary School Curriculum. Collaboratively the teachers discuss and explore how these expeditions can support and enhance the pupils' experience and enable the pupils to attain learner outcomes.
