Wilson County Schools was honored for their implementation of new innovative technology and teaching methods to captivate the attention of students and immerse them into their respective content using 3D technology.  The use of virtual reality content by Wilson County Schools is transforming education to assist in reaching the technological and academic needs of young people. Teachers are now equipped to create personalized instruction by creating tiered lessons for students. As a result of using visually interactive content, the district has observed notable improvement in student comprehension of difficult concepts on both formal and informal assessments. Student interest and participation has elevated and teachers are enthusiastic to have a user-friendly teaching resource which can hold interest of students while engaging them in subject matter and makes learning interactive and fun.
