Immersive Education Strategy
Building the future with immersive ed
Think Digital creates immersive experiences to engage, educate and inspire. Using immersive technologies like Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) we develop and deliver experiences to a range of audiences and clients, from school students, to librarians, to industry groups and producers.
Think Digital developed FarmVR as an immersive education platform for the agriculture industry. It is designed to educate people on where their food comes from and encourage them to consider a career pathway in agriculture. FarmVR has evolved to include a series of mobile apps and VR activations at events and conferences. FarmVR World is our latest app that delivers a real time Virtual Reality (VR) platform for education.
Benefits of immersive technology
VR makes it possible to provide a range of immersive training and education experiences that are either difficult or too expensive to replicate in a traditional classroom setting.
Immersive content places the learner into the situation, which provides greater comprehension and engagement with the material. The immersive nature of the technology requires the use of more of the learner’s senses. This results in increased retention of key learnings.
Immersive educational experiences can compliment or can even replace current teaching methodology. It provides a conduit to enable learners to explore career pathways, practice and experience parts of the curriculum in “real life” settings, and provide teachers with feedback on student participation. The FarmVR Product Suite facilitates enhanced learning experiences using virtual and augmented reality.

FarmVR World provides the opportunity for others to create their own learning ecosystem within the platform. RiST has engaged Think Digital to design, develop and support an immersive educational space for their students and organisation.
By adopting the latest in technologies, RiST will broaden their reach, attract the next generation of innovators and encourage them to take up careers in agriculture. It is expected that RIST will have enhanced student engagement, increased participation and greater learning outcomes.
The RiST platform will be a 24/7 collaborative virtual reality learning portal, with a combination of live classroom experiences, pre-recorded content and immersive experiences. It will allow registered students to access, engage and undertake a range of training and development experiences and provide feedback to RiST to further enhance the way they engage with their students.
