Cse Toppickcircle 2018

Com­mon Sense Edu­ca­tion recent­ly reviewed our vir­tu­al real­i­ty lab prac­tice game show, Holo­LAB Cham­pi­ons. As a result of the review, the orga­ni­za­tion rat­ed the game 4 out of 5 stars, giv­ing the game the recog­ni­tion as a 2018 Top Pick for Learning.

Here is an excerpt of the review:

Holo­LAB Cham­pi­ons is an excel­lent exam­ple of what vir­tu­al real­i­ty can bring to edu­ca­tion. Stu­dents can safe­ly exper­i­ment, play, fail, and suc­ceed in VR in a way that can­not be done in real life. These suc­cess­es and fail­ures will cer­tain­ly lead to learn­ing that will increase com­pe­tence, effi­cien­cy, and under­stand­ing in the real-world lab. Play­ers are taught how to use Bun­sen burn­ers, tare scales, pipettes, and oth­er com­mon chem­istry lab equipment. 

The game was ranked across three cat­e­gories- Engage­ment, Ped­a­gogy, and Sup­port. In terms of Engage­ment, the review­er noted:

Holo­LAB Cham­pi­ons is as engag­ing as it gets. Teach­ers would be hard pressed to find a stu­dent that didn’t enjoy chem­istry gam­i­fied.

Holo­LAB Cham­pi­ons remains free for edu­ca­tors as long as they fill out the form on its web­site. Good job, team!
