You are here MissionV (Immersive Learning Experience) - Information
MissionV Education Limited is a not for profit organisation specialising in the use of game based learning and virtual worlds technology for the support of primary school students. Supported by the National Centre for Technology in Education the pilot project is offered to 20 schools in Ireland for the Autumn term of 2011. We are lucky to have been selected as one of those schools.
Each school on the pilot project has access to a closed, secure digital desert island where participating students use geometric building tools to collaboratively construct 3D replicas of real world or fantasy structures and program these objects to generate a fully interactive world. They communicate and plan their projects via their digital character or avatar making this a truly immersive and engaging learning experience. MissionV has a key role to play in the teaching of STEM (Science, Technology, Education & Maths) subjects. This project provides a highly creative, totally immersive, game based learning environment for primary and post primary students. It puts the focus on 21st century skills, helping children to become original digital creators with 3D modelling and programming skills. MissionV allows students to connect, create and collaborate in a 3D world entirely of their own making. The project is innovative and is making excellent use of a number of cutting edge technologies. In November Mission V will host a virtual Science Week Expo, supported by Discover Science & Engineering where participating schools can show their 3D models based on the "Chemistry of Life" theme. In many ways, what makes this project exceptional is that it embraces creativity, play, and collaboration in an educational setting.
