Eindhoven’s primary school “Trinoom” offers special Virtual Reality (VR) lessons. The aim is adding a new dimension to lessons in world orientation.

Special VR-headsets are used in the classroom. Pupils started using these special headsets recently.

According to the Montessori school, their new equipment is an enrichment for world orientation lessons. Using Google software and tools, pupils literally step into a different world.

The school claims its pupils obtain knowledge and information more intensively in this manner. “Pupils really enjoy working with VR-headsets, which makes it easier to remember information,” said teacher Christel van Limpt-Tan.

The VR-headsets are used together with a special Google software package. “Trinoom” mentions it considers innovation in education important. The school therefor ensured extra budget became available for the purchase of thirty VR-headsets and software.

The school also sees opportunities for using VR in NT2-lessons. It is considering offering VR-lessons and the use of VR-headsets to refugees and other people, not yet proficient in Dutch.
