Our mission at SchooVR is to empower teachers and engage students globally by providing memorable, technology-enhanced learning experiences. We strive to create a platform built by teachers for teachers, offering ready-to-go curated experiences, resources, and lesson plans to save educators time. We are committed to providing trusted resources created by expert educators who understand the unique ways in which students learn.
SchooVR serves not to replace the traditional textbook methods of teaching, but rather work in cooperation with these methods by providing a virtual platform that delivers the same high-quality curriculum-based content in a manner that is visually engaging and empowering for students.
Founder and educator Mark Baldwin witnessed first-hand the disengagement of students in his classroom due to not feeling involved in what they are learning about. It was upon conducting a VR demonstration with his students when he realised the impact that visual interaction and engagement had on his students.
In 2019, Mark made the decision to leave teaching and dedicate himself to SchooVR full-time. Together with Theodore Giossis (CTO), Giannis Zaharakis (VP Product Development), and a dedicated team of educators, content creators, and graphic designers, development of the SchooVR platform began. The team spent three years creating and testing the platform in schools throughout Ireland. With the guidance of Dr. Rachel Farrell from the UCD School of Education, the team was able to validate the platform through extensive research on the implementation of immersive tools in the classroom.
