How to use virtual reality in education is a leap forward in the development of educational technology

Virtual reality applied to education is a leap in the development of educational technology. It creates an environment of "autonomous learning", which is replaced by the traditional learning method of "learning by teaching", which is a new way for learners to acquire knowledge and skills through the interaction between themselves and the information environment.

It is mainly used in the following aspects:

1 scientific research

At present, many colleges and universities are actively studying the virtual reality technology and its application, and have set up a virtual reality and system simulation research room, the rapid transfer of scientific research and practical technologies, such as Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics in distributed flight simulation applications; Zhejiang University in the construction of virtual planning, virtual design applications; Harbin Institute of Technology in the application of human-computer interaction; Tsinghua University on the spot and so on are quite distinctive. Some labs even have the power to independently undertake large-scale virtual reality projects. Virtual Learning Environment Virtual reality technology can provide students with a vivid and lifelike learning environment such as building a human body model, computer space travel, and molecular structure display of compounds to provide an unlimited virtual experience in a wide range of subject areas so as to accelerate and consolidate students' learning knowledge the process of. To experience it personally, to feel more convincing than empty abstract preaching, to interactive and passive instilling, there are essential differences. Virtual experiment Virtual reality technology can be used to establish a variety of virtual laboratory, such as geography, physics, chemistry, biological laboratories, etc., with traditional laboratories unmatched advantages:

1, cost savings Usually we due to equipment, venues, funds and other hardware constraints. Many experiments are impossible. The use of virtual reality system, students can do a variety of experiments without leaving home, get the same experience with the real experiment. Under the premise of guaranteeing the teaching effect, it has greatly saved the cost.

2, to avoid risks Real experiments or operations often bring a variety of dangers, the use of virtual reality technology for virtual experiments, students in the virtual experiment environment, you can safely do a variety of dangerous experiments. For example, a virtual piloting teaching system for aircraft can avoid the serious accident that caused the aircraft crashes when the students make mistakes.

3, to break the space, the time limit The use of virtual reality technology, you can completely break the time and space constraints. Large universe objects, as small as atomic particles, students can enter the interior of these objects for observation. Some changes that take decades or even centuries to observe can be presented to the students in a very short period of time through virtual reality technology. For example, Mendel 's laws of genetics, experiments with fruit flies often take months, and virtualization can be done in a single lesson.

2 virtual training base:

Virtual reality training base established by virtual reality technology, its "equipment" and "components" are mostly virtual, according to the generation of new equipment at any time. Teaching content can be constantly updated, so that practical training in a timely manner to keep up with the development of technology. At the same time, the immersiveness and interactivity of virtual reality enable students to play a role in the virtual learning environment and dedicate themselves fully to the learning environment, which is very conducive to students' skills training. Including military combat skills, surgical skills, teaching skills, sports skills, car driving skills, fruit trees cultivation skills, electrical maintenance skills and other vocational skills training, due to the virtual training system without any danger, students can take the trouble to practice repeatedly, Until master operating skills. For example, in a virtual aircraft driving training system, trainees can repeatedly operate control equipment to learn how to take off and land in various weather conditions, and through repeated training, achieve the purpose of mastering driving skills.

3 Virtual Simulation Campus:

In a series of related documents, the Ministry of Education has repeatedly touched upon the virtual campus and clarified the status and role of the virtual campus. The virtual campus is also the earliest concrete application of virtual reality technology in education and training. It has three application levels from shallow to deep, which are adapted to the different needs of schools. Simple virtual environment Our campus environment is for visitors to browse based on teaching, educational affairs, campus life, The function is relatively complete three-dimensional visual virtual campus to student-centered, add a series of human features, virtual reality technology as the basis for distance education virtual distance education Virtual Reality can be expanded for enrollment of colleges and universities after the enrollment of distance education and teaching points Mobile e-learning sites, interactive distance learning course catalogs and websites, links to campus websites by LAN tools, open and long-distance education for all terminals, new technologies for the community and Higher vocational training opportunities, to create greater economic and social benefits. With the continuous development and improvement of virtual reality technology and the ever-decreasing price of hardware and equipment, we believe that virtual reality technology will gradually receive the attention and favor of educators with its own powerful teaching advantages and potential. Finally, in education The field of training is widely used and plays an important role.
