Wednesday 28th of September: Preventing Dropouts by Using Virtual Reality in the Classroom




People learn differently. Som learn fast, others slow. Some find reading the best way to take in new knowledge, for others listening to a lecture or seeing a video is better. This can be accommodated by implementing smart technology solutions tailored for study situations. Still learning institutions appear to be reluctant when it comes to unleashing the power of technology in the classrooms.

Two leading IT-experts, Seppo Laukkanen and Ludwig Sandell have come together to remedy this by designing an easy to use solution, capable of bringing education into the 21st century for real.

Seppo and Ludwig aim at reducing dropouts from schools and studies by

  • helping students overcome academic difficulties and failure,
  • minimising the need of using retention in the school system, and
  • decreasing the feeling of detachment from the study situation.
