Revolutionizing Education: The Promise of Virtual Reality
Gadelha, Rene
Childhood Education, v94 n1 p40-43 2018
Virtual reality (VR) has the potential to revolutionize education, as it immerses students in their learning more than any other available medium. By blocking out visual and auditory distractions in the classroom, it has the potential to help students deeply connect with the material they are learning in a way that has never been possible before. To say it's revolutionary may be underselling VR learning. In order to be successful in a traditional learning setting, however, the VR content must be meaningful, engaging, and navigable so that students retain what they learn. This article briefly discusses the benefits of VR, how to judge quality in VR content, and incorporating VR into a flexible learning environment.
