Immersive Learning

Immersive Learning is the utilisation of Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR) to enhance and deliver student learning outcomes.

VR, AR and MR, what’s the difference?

Virtual Reality

  • Fully artificial environment
  • Full immersion in a virtual environment


Example: 
PlayStation VR and HP Z VR Headsets

Augmented Reality

  • Virtual objects overlaid on a real-world environment
  • The real world enhanced with digital objects

Example: 
Pokemon Go, Snapchat filters and Google Glass

Mixed Reality

  • Virtual environment combined with real world
  • Interact with both the real world and the virtual environment

Example: 
Skype on Microsoft HoloLens

How Immersive Learning addresses the Digital Curriculum

Beyond the wow factor that mixed reality technologies provide students, they also support specific learning outcomes in the Designing and Developing Digital Outcomes component of the revised New Zealand Curriculum.

These outcomes include:

  • Use of various storytelling techniques, mediums and media to create interactive narratives and videos.
  • Develop and exercise creativity with designing characters, building 3D models and much more.
  • Comprehend complex concepts by viewing processes, organisms and environments that help in creating interactive digital platforms.
