Are Virtual Classrooms the Future?

Are Virtual Classrooms the Future?

At the second lecture of the Stanford Digital Learning Forum Seminar Series, Professor Jeremy Bailenson proposed that virtual reality can fundamentally transform learning and its outcomes.

He demonstrated how manipulating technologies such as a virtual reality headset can improve student attention, reduce stereotype threat, and give students access to places like the coral reef without ever making them leave their homes or classrooms.

Bailenson is Associate Professor of Communication, Senior Fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment, and Founder of the Virtual Human Interaction Lab.

The next lecture, “Social Psychological Approaches to Creating Positive Motivational Environments” with Professor Geoffrey Cohen, will take place on Tuesday, January 13th.
