(3) “In Front of the Text” (discovery of the implications and impact on Christians throughout history and around the world).

The curriculum is designed with certain principles of adult learning you can learn about here.

Why Use Virtual Reality?

As an educational tool, Virtual Reality helps students improve deep learning and retention. They learn more, remember longer and decide better through active, immersive, self-directed experientials. Suitable for all learning styles, VR aids our understanding of complex subjects, theories and concepts as well as creating a sense of connectedness. VR goggles are sometimes called “empathy machines” for today’s digital generation. This sophisticated technology is accessible with viewing devices that can cost as little as $8!

 

BibleJourney interviews are featured both Behind the Text and In Front of the Text. You’ll meet over 40 church and ministry leaders, scholars, musicians and artists, including Michael Card, Abuna Elias Chacour, Sara Groves, Anne Graham Lotz, Dr. Emanuel Tov and more
