The educational aspects of VTT are many.
Our company was created to help students learn how to learn and to relate to the world around them from a geographic perspective. Today VTT is focused on expanding the definition of education beyond the classroom walls to incorporate geographic perspectives that relate to understanding the world.
- Who defines the body of knowledge?
- To what degree must learning be tied to the classroom setting?
