1500 years of painting - Masterpieces in 4K for the classroom - Or how to inspire students

With an HD interactive panel or whiteboard, paintings looks nice. With a 4K interactive panel, students can view all the details of the artwork, including the movments of the brush on the canvas.

We built a slideshow of paintings - a classroom friendly selection of inspinring masterpieces. Definitively more inspiring than a black screen!

Two formats are available:

- The web slideshow offers a premium experience and is expected to work on any OS and browser, and supports full 4K: http://pixinuum.com

- The video format also offers a full 4K resolution and will run on even more devices:

Experimenting virtual reality in the classroom with Oculus Rift DK2 and Classroom Browser


Context

Working on solutions for the classroom, we were curious to evaluate the educational value of virtual reality.

We had the following questions:

  • What can we learn within 5 minutes or less with VR?
  • What can we understand within 5 minutes or less with VR?

Based on the feedback from a few teachers using our educational experiences, we created several short scenarios with a focus on the relationship between the students and the teacher during the VR experiment.

Some of our educational VR experiences are available on Oculus Share: Cartoon or Dinosaurs.


Pedagogical aspects

The goal of the experiment is to evaluate if VR has a pedagogical value in the classroom.

For the experiment, the teacher and students stand up and hold a mobile device allowing them to move in the virtual world. The students can see the teacher but not the other students.

BYOD in the classroom

BYOD in the classroom - Realistically

A teacher in a classroom with 35 students using different devices and operating systems.

When teacher support a student unable to download an app, as an IT would do, what will do the 34 other students with full access to apps and Internet on their own devices?

To solve this, EXO UI is a space each student can install on his own device, to be all-together in an area dedicated to assist the teaching and the learning processes, whatever is the curriculum, the methodology, and the technology involved.



Home pages

Students and teacher can customize their home pages and choose the apps they want from the dedicated store.

The developer has access to +750 exciting new properties, methods and events directy from JavaScript.
