Schools

Virtual Reality (VR) based educational programs offer an educational and experiential look back at times gone by. The program is made unique by its innovative approach, by means of which forgotten structures and buildings are presented in the same places where they were once located. Students experience the changes that have taken place in the urban space or the landscape by travelling between different viewpoints and directly compare the experience gained with today’s environment. Such a solution has not been used before in Estonia and neighbouring countries.

Our virtual reality time travel experiences are an innovative and modern solution to make history lessons more exciting. Journeys to different parts of Estonia combine the central themes and integration opportunities of history and social studies and offer insights into the political events of Estonia’s recent history, which are also discussed in the syllabus of the basic school.

The core of the company is formed by historians who are alumni of the University of Tartu, whose in-depth and thorough archive work ensures that the views and descriptions depicted correspond to historical veracity and offer knowledge that cannot be found in conventional textbooks and non-fiction. Virtual reality time travel experience is the perfect means of revitalising learning, enabling you to experience places that have been destroyed. The translation of the audio guide in nine different languages ​​offers an additional opportunity to link the course with, for example, a foreign language lesson.

VR Toila 1938 visitor

Toilan läpi kiemurtelevan Pühajoen alkulaaksossa sijaitsee Orun puisto. Yksi Venäjän rikkaimmista kauppiaista, Grigori Jelissejev, rakennutti sinne vuonna 1899 linnamaisen palatsin. Kolme virolaista tehtailijaa ostivat sen 1930-luvulla ja lahjoittivat kesäasunnoksi presidentti Konstantin Pätsille. Toisessa maailmansodassa rakennus kuitenkin tuhoutui.
Pääsimme virtuaalilasien avulla tehtävälle aikamatkalle heinäkuuhun 1938 eli kierrokselle presidentin kesäasuntoon ja puistoon - juuri sellaisena, kuin mitä se tuolloin näytti sisältä ja ulkoa.
Suomeksi ääniopastetun ja useita katselupaikkoja käsittävän kävelykierroksen kesto on 30 min.
Kyseessä on ”Viron Kultaranta.”

Mulle ikka väga meeldis tänane Oru pargi külastamine ja ajarännak. Olekski jäänud sinna aastasse 1938. Nii ilus oli loss ja loodus. Kõik need linnud ja liblikad, nagu muinasjutt. Samas ka väga huvitav, sain palju targemaks. 🙂 Suur tänu ja kummardus elamuse eest!

VR-opplevelsen ga også en påminnelse om hvor destruktiv andre verdenskrig var for Estland, med all sin ødeleggelse av estiske byer og bygninger med all dens historie. Håper vi en gang i fremtiden kan oppleve at ORU CASTLE blir gjenoppbygget i all sin historiske prakt.

Pilti saja aasta tagusest Tartust saatis info, mis selgitas tollast olustikku ning pakkus originaalset ajaloolist informatsiooni, mida tavapärastest õpikutest ja aimekirjandusest ei leia. Õpilased said väga intensiivse, põneva ja autentse ajalookogemuse ning hakkasid kohe mõtlema ka, mida sellise virtuaalreaalsuse loomiseks teha on vaja: uurida arhiivimaterjali, taasluua ajaloolist keskkonda ja see 3D-modelleerida.

Next level attraction of taking you back in time and seeing how the place looked like in 1938. Very amazing, took our breath away. Recommend highly.
