Teaching Math in VR? 📚
🌍Prisms VR, a startup founded by Anarupa Ganguly, is transforming math literacy using immersive technology.
📚Traditional math teaching methods seem to fall short, with low math scores among US students. But with virtual reality, students can now learn math in realistic digital environments and solve real-world problems.
📊Prisms VR's learning platform takes math problems from textbooks and brings them to life, helping students make sense of concepts that they find challenging.
🎮By simulating real-world locations and situations, Prisms VR allows students to apply their math knowledge in practical ways. For example, they can calculate the height a house's foundation should be raised to prevent flood damage.
🏠According to Anarupa Ganguly, students using the VR platform learn math concepts faster, with lessons that usually take weeks being completed in just one week.
🚀As an educator herself, Ganguly collaborated with nonprofit WestEd to research the effectiveness of VR in teaching STEM subjects. The findings showed promising results, indicating the potential success of Prisms VR's approach.
