This fall kids will go back to school with virtual learning, 3D interactive environments where everything is possible: visiting New York, exploring the human cell, flying through the Solar System, or traveling back in time to Ancient Egypt.
Online PR News – 29-August-2013 – CHICAGO, IL – This fall kids will go back to school with a powerful new friend- 3D learning. Starting September 15 kids will step into three-dimensional, interactive environments and enter worlds where everything is possible: visiting New York, exploring the human cell, flying through the Solar System, or traveling back in time to Ancient Egypt. With one click, kids are inside of their schoolwork, and its all free.
Virtual learning programs developed by SUNRISE (www.sunrisevr.com) put kids inside of their schoolwork. SUNRISE founder Brett Reid says, “It combines the power of a computer, the information of a textbook, the imagery of a movie, and the excitement of exploration into one new learning experience. With one click students are in 3D worlds based on their studies. We are excited about its possibilities in education”
As students study in a traditional manner virtual learning is used to supplement existing learning. As a textbook is read and studied, virtual learning is used as an active supplement; while studying the human cell in a textbook, for example, students are able to then explore the cell in 3D, improving the learning process and greatly extending the boundaries and resources of schools.
American children have numerous and well-documented deficiencies in many subject areas, especially science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Virtual learning has the potential to become an important part of the national effort to improve education and help students “Understand Everything.”
With one click students are flash-based virtual worlds. Virtual learning programs open just like any other website, complementing text and picture-based websites with a 3D experience to truly engage students.
SUNRISE (www.sunrisevr.com) was founded by MIT researcher Brett Reid, who saw the potential in virtual technologies to help underserved Chicago students learn by introducing powerful new tools into the educational process. Over the next decade, SUNRISE created more virtual learning programs than any other company in the world, primarily used in controlled environments. Today SUNRISE offers everyone the chance to use virtual learning free of charge. For more information visit www.sunrisevr.com.
