Description: Using VR to deliver Experiential Learning. The main objective is to further facilitate the Department of Education curriculum learning through emerging technology that students are excited to use. Also, given the expected growth in STEM careers, our objective is to encourage young Australians to be technologically empowered, even in fields that traditionally have not needed technology. The aim is to combine VR with Kolb’s method of experiential learning to achieve the best results for students. It is expected to gain higher retention rates of knowledge among participants.

The first scene will be an Antarctic experience which will allow students to put on the virtual reality headset and enter the world of the Antarctic. The scenario begins where scientist will introduce the topic and explain the reasoning for their presence, their significance with the ecology, and what are some of the activities that take place. She will then tell you to take a photo of a penguin for research purposes. There will be different resources given to the student staggered throughout the experience to see their intuitiveness of the setting and their grasping of the resources regarding problem-solving. The introduction will be a blend of science and geography, and the experience will allow the students to get a first-hand feel into a day in the life of an Antarctic scientist.

Review: At one point in its life ‘Kolb Antarctica Experience’ might well have been some grand adventure exploring Antarctica and its wildlife. But for now, all you have is less than 3 minutes of talking about that stuff and no adventure at all, not even the start of one as you can’t move from where you are! If this was free I would have been telling you it was kind of a waste of time downloading it due to how short it was, but for £2.09 I suggest you avoid it like the plague. It makes me wonder what developers are thinking when they release games in such early states like this. Other than it being a cash grab I have no idea.
