Summary: DISCOVR sees virtual reality as the future of experiential learning. It believes that learning should be about more than just pushing test scores. It’s a process of self-development and actualization. Virtual reality will become an important part of that process, allowing people to discover their passions and learn about their interests by putting them inside of the subject matter.
