As technology becomes ingrained in day-to-day lessons, teachers feel that the next step in ICT – virtual reality (VR) – will benefit learning by enhancing engagement in lessons and raising attainment.
According to global technology group Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY), 94% of teachers can see how their lessons can be enhanced by the technology and nearly half (42%) estimate it will be commonplace in the next five years.
Over 35 per cent have little or no understanding of the new measures. A recent survey on teachers’ understanding of the Government’s new accountability measures, Progress 8 and Attainment 8, has revealed that over 35 per cent of teachers feel they have ‘very little, little or no understanding’ of the new system. The survey, that was carried out by online homework and exam-preparation service for secondary schools, SAM Learning, gained over 400 teacher responses.
