What is a VR Festival?


Tablet Academy are keen to introduce practical VR learning in schools. We therefore wish to offer schools, colleges and educational organisations the opportunity to take part in a FREE Virtual Reality Learning Festival. These events offer teachers and pupils the opportunity to take part in a range of activities linked to different areas of the curriculum including Science, Literacy, Humanities and Art.




Workshop Content:


Literacy: Be inspired by a fascinating story to develop your descriptive writing.


Geography: Learn all about volcanoes by travelling inside the Earth then flying high in the sky to observe an explosive eruption.


Science: Dive deep inside the human body to see for yourself how amazing we really are.
