A new program is encouraging middle school students to learn math through virtual reality (VR) problem-solving. The program has been adopted by 190 school districts across 36 states. Instead of memorizing equations, students solve real-world problems, such as restoring power to a damaged grid, using VR technology. The founder of the program, Anurupa Ganguly, believes that this new approach will make math more engaging and improve test scores. However, there is growing skepticism about the effectiveness of digital tools in education. Sweden recently moved away from using tablets and technology in favor of traditional methods, and a recent UNESCO report highlighted the inequality caused by the reliance on technology during remote learning. Despite these concerns, entrepreneurs and investors are still excited about the potential of ed-tech solutions. It is important to remember that more research is needed to determine the true impact of these tools. The Hechinger Report, a nonprofit news organization focused on education, is committed to exploring these issues and sharing new ideas.
