TORONTO, June 25, 2021 /CNW/ - Tech-AdaptiKa is proud to announce the launch of its first avatar-based virtual reality summer school, available across North America, in conjunction with Voilà Learning and proudly funded by both the Canadian and American governments. Through the use of personalized avatars, English, French and math teachers will be connected to virtual classrooms every Monday to Thursday from 9am to noon to lead fun, educational activities with students in grades 1 to 12.
More than one year into the COVID-19 pandemic, students around the world are still affected by partial or full school closures, and millions of children will fall below the minimum proficiency level in reading due to the health crisis.
Voilà Learning and Tech-AdaptiKa are creating a virtual learning opportunity this summer to make up for this lost year of education. The companies have teamed up to offer an immersive virtual learning experience to students across North America to help them catch up on important school curriculum.
"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."
The Virtual Reality Summer School will be offered from July 15 to September 15, and it is available to school boards in Canada and the United States.
