Kavanagh, Sam; Luxton-Reilly, Andrew; Wuensche, Burkhard; Plimmer, Beryl – Themes in Science and Technology Education, 2017
Virtual reality has existed in the realm of education for over half a century. However, its widespread adoption is still yet to occur. This is a result of a myriad of limitations to both the technologies themselves, and the costs and logistics required to deploy them. In order to gain a better understanding of what these issues are, and what it is…

Zacharis, Georgios K.; Mikropoulos, Tassos Anastasios; Kalyvioti, Katerina – Themes in Science and Technology Education, 2016
Studies showed that two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) educational content contributes to learning. Although there were many studies with 3D stereoscopic learning environments, only a few studies reported on the differences between real, 2D, and 3D scenes, as far as cognitive load and attentional demands were concerned. We used…
