VIRTUAL REALITY SUITE
At Bishopton, we have worked hard over the past couple of years to improve the facilities within the school but continually strive to keep abreast with the latest technologies so that we can equip pupils for the ever developing world.
We have managed to purchase enough VR headsets for a class to use in school thanks to numerous generous donations and the fundraising of our parents. These headsets are helping to enrich the academic lives of children right now at Bishopton.
Who is this for?
This project allows pupils, parents and the wider community to access a range of virtual and augmented reality apps in small group or class situations, from historical recreations to scientific and geographical apps. We are also be looking to allow neighbouring schools to use this resource, thus creating a shared approach to computing throughout Stratford Upon Avon.
Why do we like it?
We are very lucky to have a number of computers within the school but, with increasing numbers and reduced funding, pupils will not always get the access to the brand new ICT resources that they deserve. By creating a virtual reality suite that can be added to over the next few years, we have set up an area that pupils find engaging and can be developed as future finances dictate.
