The Academy at Shotton Hall has been awarded a sizeable grant to participate in an Erasmus project called VLearning.
Alongside partners from Finland, Spain and Slovenia, staff and students will create virtual and augmented learning resources for use in classrooms. From looking at planets and the water cycle in science to virtual visits to art galleries in art, the project is certain to bring a lot of excitement to the classroom.
The first step of the project was developing a partnership with Software City in Sunderland. They will offer support for developing virtual reality (VR) platforms and resources. We have also partnered up with RTC North and the National STEM Learning Network.
Dr Hargreaves, Mr Clarke and Mr Kell have already attended a training session in Ibi in Spain to learn about virtual reality. See photos below.
We look forward to watching this project develop. Watch this space...
