Playstation VR Immerses Children to Write​

Video games have the ability to engage pupils like no other medium and that is why as part of our work on Kensuke's Kingdom, the adventure novel by Michael Morpurgo, we decided to use PlayStation VR and the video game Perfect to immerse them in detailed rendered representation of a tropical beach. We used the PSVR and connected it onto a projector and sound system. Mr Razaq was controlling the VR headset as it is not recommended for anyone under the age of 12. He held the VR headset in his hand and controlled it in this way so he could still speak to the pupils. He recorded the gameplay using the recording option and uploaded it onto YouTube.com so the children could refer to it whilst they were writing their piece.
