One of the most powerful things about VR is its ability to have a shared experience at scale.
From an education perspective, this is an extremely exciting thing. The below TED talk is a fantastic example of how VR can bring multi-million dollar facilities to every student without the cost of traditional real-world labs.
Not only that but the evidence in the video suggests that combining teachers and VR in this way results in a 2x improvement in learning outcomes. Just awesome!
