Immersive learning comprises the use of Virtual & Augmented Reality (VR/AR). The immersive approach makes learning fully experiential.
It creates a deeper level of engagement in targeted topics in a distraction-free environment.
The HSsi approach positively impacts students’ comprehension as well as their retention capabilities. The learner gains real-life experience in a risk-free environment, and in an inexpensive way.
Virtual Reality is the medium that can enhance learning by making it more memorable.
A real-life application of the HSsi method:
Nqileni Village, the home of the Bulungula Incubator, is so remotely located that students are not exposed to the wider world. Virtual Reality is giving children the opportunity to explore the world and “travel” for the very first time. Students having difficulties grasping the concept of a volcano by merely looking at 2D photographs in school textbooks, can experience the natural phenomenon in a powerfully graphic way. VR is a fantastic way to “immerse” students in their lessons.
Through HSsi students can pursue learning via both traditional and immersive learning methods almost anywhere, even in places where internet connectivity is not available.
The HSsi Inclusive platform empowers teachers to produce contextualized subject contents while promoting the creation of teaching materials in the learners’ mother tongue to enhance understanding.
Scalability of educational contents
The HSsi Inclusive platform gives schools and communities in remote areas the capacity tools to mutually share educational materials via online means.
HSsi will open up new types of jobs opportunities not just for teachers but also empower youth and women to get trained in a wide range of sectors beyond school curricula.
Empowers content creators
The user-friendliness of the HSsi Course Creator makes course creation a piece of cake.
