There has never been a better time to offer a virtual open day inside your school.
Here’s a sentence you’re probably tired of reading: the world we live in has changed immeasurably.
It is true, though. Ever since the pandemic took hold, our lives have been transformed. More people than ever before are working from home and countless parents have had to take on the role of home teachers while also carrying out work duties.
The good news is that this won’t be the way of life forever. People have already started returning to their workplaces and students will, of course, eventually populate classrooms again.
Offering open days, just not in the traditional sense
However, for as long as social-distancing protocols remain in place, schools will have to think twice before hosting open days ahead of the next academic year. Welcoming hundreds, and in some cases, thousands of students and parents through the school gates simply isn’t feasible on health grounds.
However, this doesn’t mean that schools can’t host open days – it just means that they will have to use their imagination, and perhaps call on the help of some virtual reality ingenuity.
By enlisting the services of a high-tech video production team, it is possible to take anybody, anywhere in the world, on a virtual open day inside your school.
This will familiarise students and parents with the halls and classrooms without setting foot in the actual building. Additionally, it allows schools to put their best foot forward by highlighting their areas of high achievement.
Get your message out there
This will not only appeal to the parents of the incoming student group, but it will also impress parents of younger children who are still making their minds up about where they should send their kids in the coming years.
Virtual tours have been perfected by iroamtours, making it perfect sense to call upon their services. Many schools have already made enquiries about producing a virtual tour of their facilities.
With the world in the grip of the pandemic, this is the best possible option for any school or organisation wishing to show off their premises, and all it has to offer, to the public.
