Tech-Adaptika launches its First Avatar-based Virtual Reality Summer School in North America
Students can create their avatars and immerse themselves in a virtual classroom where they can learn and interact.
FREMONT, CA: In collaboration with Voilà Learning, Tech-AdaptiKa is delighted to announce the opening of its first avatar-based virtual reality summer school, which will be available across North America and proudly financed by both the Canadian and American governments. Every week from Monday to Thursday, from 9 a.m. to noon, English, French, and math teachers will be connected to virtual classrooms using individualized avatars to lead entertaining, educational activities with children in grades 1 to 12.
Students worldwide are still being affected by partial or complete school closures more than a year after the COVID-19 epidemic began. Millions of children will fall below the minimal reading proficiency level due to the health crisis.
During summer, Voilà Learning and Tech-AdaptiKa collaborate to offer a virtual learning opportunity to make up for the missed school year. Both companies have partnered together to provide students across North America with an immersive virtual learning experience to help them catch up on necessary schoolwork.
"We want to help bridge the learning gap for Canadian and American students by creating opportunities for meaningful interactions safely. Our virtual platform allows educators to teach in a more human-centric way," said Carrie Purcell, Co-founder, Tech-AdaptiKa.
"Students can personalize their own avatars and be immersed in a classroom where they can learn and engage with their teacher and peers," said Hosni Zaouali, Co-founder, Tech-AdaptiKa. "Now more than ever, teachers are an important part of facilitating student learning, well-being, and growth.This virtual reality summer school is an innovative platform that will help support teachers, students and parents until schools can remain open in a sustainable way."
From July 15 through September 15, the Virtual Reality Summer School will be available to school boards in the United States and Canada.
