NAIDOC and the ‘Edg Virtual Reality’ Experience

NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee’. The purpose of this committee is to increase awareness in the wider community of the status and treatment of Indigenous Australians. As well as this, it is a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and is an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society.

To celebrate, the ‘Edg Virtual Reality’ company visited our school and held their ‘Interact with Aboriginal Australian’ workshops with each class. During these workshops, students became immersed in the Aboriginal culture through interactive games, videos and an animated film outlining some of the popular beliefs of Aboriginal myths.

‘Edg VR’ has been created by world renowned educators, experts and developers utilising the latest technology. Using their bespoke software platform and unique content, Edg VR networks 35 devices, therefore allowing every child to experience the virtual scenario with their own headset. This VR was a powerful educational tool that excited, inspired and delivered a shared experience.
