Learning isn't just about dusty textbooks any more. Through technology, education – a basic human right – has become more accessible. As active supporters of education for all and a leading tech company, Vodacom is focused on #ConnectedLearning. Virtual Reality is one such innovation that we are tapping into to make education through technology a possibility in all of South Africa and beyond.

Kids can now be transported to new worlds right from their classrooms, courtesy of Virtual Reality headsets and apps.

Virtual Reality (VR) has become increasingly popular with schools as the technology has become cheaper, and organisations are now creating educational content specially designed to be experienced using VR.

Platforms such as Google Expeditions enable pupils to take virtual trips around the world, into space, and even back in time. The use of drones to film in previously inaccessible areas, such as the no-go zone around the former nuclear reactor in Chernobyl, Ukraine, means we can explore the planet like never before. At home, games consoles such as PlayStation4 and Oculus Rift offer VR titles, while you can also download apps to play on your phone or tablet. It’s a technology that takes players on adventures that parents could only have dreamed of when they were young.
