Virtual Reality: how it can dramatically improve learning

| TIGER Talk
The process of Learning (education, training and simulation) has been ripe for disruption for quite some time now. The current approach used in western society was designed for a purpose that no longer exists and, as a result, large segments of our population have been unable to realize their full potential.
Alternative approaches to learning have been designed and implemented with varying degrees of success, but we have yet to see the mass adoption of these techniques.
Virtual Reality just might be the last puzzle piece to a learning revolution that transforms our society, creating more opportunity and growth for a broader segment of our society.
Let’s discuss how this technology impacts learning and how you can begin to think about it in a way that gives your business an early advantage.

He has built a successful career out of leveraging his extensive infrastructure, application development, and interactive experiences to start companies, build products, drive campaigns and optimize business processes in various industries.
