We are so excited to announce that beginning this Fall 2019, Paradigm Schools will become the 1st public school in the state of Utah to begin the implementation process of “XR” technology in our school (Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality). The process will begin small and grow over the next few years.
Headset devices will be used onsite to enhance learning opportunities for our scholars. We will be able to visit virtual places around the world, or out of this world, back in time, or even into a version of the future. We will be able to explore inside of a human cell, the surface of planets in our solar system, or sit in the Roman Colosseum for a discussion on ancient Rome.
Much is being considered in regards to safeguarding our classical culture and small class sizes, and not losing the human connection as well as any health or medical concerns from VR and AR devices and screen time. We believe that the future may very well embrace this and other technological advancements and we are fortunate to be the FIRST in our state to explore this cutting edge technology in the classroom setting.
I love Paradigm. My children have never been happier, and have found a love of learning that was missing in their previous education!Julia H.
I went to Paradigm all through high school. Best experience ever. Not only did it help me focus on my strengths, but it also prepared me for college with its challenging curriculum that makes you think outside the box. The mentors there care about each of their students individually, and want nothing more than the students’ success.Jennifer L.
In Fall 2019, Paradigm Schools became the first public school in the state of Utah to offer virtual and augmented reality technology to scholars. Headset devices are used to enhance learning opportunities for our scholars, allowing them to explore virtual places around the world, on another planet, or during a completely different time period. Whether it’s visiting the surface of Mars or exploring the Pyramids of Giza, this is a completely immersive learning experience.
