The Grange Institution has partnered up with VERE360, a technology start-up to create proprietary VR & AR contents for its IPC Units of Learning – and in doing so, became the first school in the world to offer learners with such experience. VERE360 is complementing The Grange’s future-focused curriculum by using virtual reality, bringing students’ learning come to life! Virtual reality empowers teachers to conduct highly engaging lessons that leads to great retention of knowledge.
VERE360 aims to provide complete access to quality learning content and tools for learner engagement through innovative technologies in Southeast Asia. Vere360 content and teacher-friendly platform have supported educational institutions in Singapore, Indonesia and the Philippines to better teaching and learning. They are currently incubated by NUS Enterprise.
Check out some of these lessons by VERE360, created with The Grange:
Note: Some videos are better experienced through a VR headset.
We brought students right inside our heads! Students had the opportunity to explore a 3D-modelled puzzle, where they could take apart various parts of the brain to learn about the individual functions. Afterwards, the students put the parts of the brain back together, learning basic anatomy.
Day in the Life of a Water Droplet
This lesson was meant to serve as a refresher on the water cycle that students learnt throughout their Unit of Learning. Using virtual reality, the students were placed in the shoes of a water droplet that went through the stages of evaporation, condensation and precipitation. This helps students to solidify their understanding of this topic.
This content was created during the period of Home-Based Learning. Relying on just their sense of hearing to explore various musical instruments around a darkened room, it engages and provides students with a form of sensitivity towards sound and music even when they had no direct access to the music room in school.
