3D AND VR IN EDUCATION
One of the most popular trends in the development of VR is education. There are many different options for the application of the technology in this area – from school tours to ancient Egypt in geography lessons to training medical specialists. For example, the application of VR in the training and daily work of future doctors and nurses to practice and prepare for difficult actions. As these technologies develop, we can easily imagine anatomical information, in either 3D, VR or AR, overlapped on top of patients.
The use of VR and 3D opens up many new opportunities for learning and education that are too complex, time consuming or expensive with traditional approaches. Some advantages of the use of these technologies in education are:
• Visibility, because by using 3D graphics, chemical processes can be shown in detail down to the atomic level. VR can not only provide information about various phenomena, but also demonstrate it with any degree of detail;
• Security, think heart surgeries, control of speed trains, space shuttles, or safety in case of fire - you can immerse the viewer in any of these circumstances without the slightest threat to life;
• Involvement, as VR allows to change scenarios, influence the course of an experiment, or solve a math problem in a playful and easy-to-understand way, and;
• Focus, because a virtual world surrounds the viewer from all sides at 360 degrees. This allows to concentrate entirely on the study material and not be distracted by external stimuli.
