Our Project – VR Mindfulness

This has been a very exciting project that is based on research into the use of VR technology in mindfulness. Sixth class are currently conducting research into existing technology.  We also have pupils from every class in the school with parental consent to help us with our research.

We purchased Seven Oculus Go headsets with the finance from the cluster to initiate the research stage of our study.

We decided on the Oculus Go as it is a self contained unit and does not require any additional hardware such as a phone. We had done tests with some other brands and found that those with a separate phone tended to overheat and cause problems after prolonged use.
