Nexcel Marketing and Communications Limited has partnered with Veative Labs, a global provider of interactive Virtual Reality Education Content, with a view to boosting the learning and teaching of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) concepts.
“STEM” is an important educational topic sweeping through homes and schools across the world. STEM is an acronym representing the huge push to teach and involve students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
Due to low enthusiasm in many schools, both parents and teachers are striving to find new and better ways to create greater interest in these critical learning topics. These classroom subjects give children relevant keys to a booming future in one of these science-driven fields. Although there are many ways to help encourage a STEM education, Virtual Reality makes teaching and learning of STEM concepts engaging, involving , impactful and memorable
The quest to take Virtual Reality experience beyond games and contribute to rekindling of interest in the learning and teaching of STEM concept in Nigeria, necessitated Nexcel Marketing’s partnership with Veative Labs.
Tagged “Veative VR Module,” the application is localized to any language backed with OST (on-screen text) and VO (voice-over) to take care of different learning styles, including auditory learners. Information on Veative isalso presented in clear immersive visuals.
Veative Labs, is the largest global provider of interactive Virtual Reality Education Content dedicated to improving learning outcomes in the classroom.
