  • The challenge

    Enhancing education with more innovative, scalable methods

Educators from K–12 to higher education know that technology innovation can be critical to engaging and effectively teaching students. 

New tools for collaboration and augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) could elevate the educational experience. 

Schools need the right internet connectivity and bandwidth to support these tools.

  • Improve educational experiences with tech.

    Innovative technologies like virtual reality could engage students in new, powerful ways and enhance educational experiences.

  • 5G opportunities

    5G-enhanced educational possibilities

Educators from K–12 to higher education are looking for more effective, engaging ways to educate students.

VR offers new possibilities for students to interact with educational content within a virtual, three-dimensional learning environment.

These VR experiences require high bandwidth and high refresh rates.

Because of 5G’s ability to support increased data volumes with low lag (or latency), it can be ideal for supporting VR or other AR experiences.

How it works

    • 5G puts the reality into virtual reality learning experiences.

      • Students in classrooms and remote locations put on VR headsets and enter a multiuser VR experience set in outer space, showing planets and star systems.

      • Large amounts of data are used to create immersive virtual learning environments, all powered by 5G.

      • Students are able to interact with each other in the environment, creating stars and manipulating planets.
      • By visualizing the environment and the complicated concepts and theories, students can better comprehend and retain the subject matter.

      • Students in other classrooms could potentially join the same virtual environment, collaborating and learning together at scale.
      • 5G networks could help make these rich learning experiences a reality for students.
