Special Experiences for Exceptional Students: Integrating Virtual Reality into Special Education Classrooms.
Miller, Erez Cedric
This paper discusses some of the potential benefits and hazards that virtual reality holds for exceptional children in the special education system. Topics addressed include (1) applications of virtual reality, including developing academic skills via cyberspace, vocational training, and social learning in cyberspace; (2) telepresence and distance education; (3) the role of teacher in cyberspace; (4) changing teacher-training programs; (5) the corollary curricular change; and (6) the risks of using virtual reality in special education. Although virtual reality is in its infancy, a theoretical framework must be developed that will guide its use. (Contains 10 references.) (SLD)
