Thrive visits Social virtual learning-project
During the partnermeeting in Wuppertal the projectpartners visited the Social virtual learning project.
In the Social Augmented Learning (SAL) project augmented reality has been added to existing learning environments to enable new ways of teaching and learning. This approach has evolved since September 2016. It is a follow-up of the project Social Virtual Learning (SVL) In this project a virtual reality learning environment is developed based on the didactic and technical foundation created in the SAL.
In the proven project network, the following partners are working on using Virtual Reality in the vocational education of media technologists:
Central Committee for Vocational Training for Printing and the Media (ZFA), Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Rostock, Bergische University Wuppertal, Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG and MMB Institute.
The technological foundation for SVL is Virtual Reality. In a virtual environment, learners can experience work processes directly and interactively on a virtual press. The high degree of immersion, which allows to gain authentic experiences on the virtual learning object and last but not least increases the fun of discovering complex machines. Social virtual learning should contribute to enabling practical and workplace-related learning experiences in vocational education and training, regardless of which machines are available at the place of learning. Above all, the focus is on action-oriented learning. Appropriately designed exercises support the development of competencies and procedural knowledge.
