Virtual reality (VR) technology offers promise in enriching learning opportunities in teacher education programs. The purpose of this study was to investigate the ways immersive virtual reality has been used in teacher-training programs. This systematic review of literature examined eight studies where immersive VR was utilized to increase learning opportunities during courses that prepared pre-service teachers or in-service teachers taking advanced coursework in education. Included studies were analyzed in terms of (a) participant description, (b) description of the intervention and purpose of the study, (c) study methodology, (d) dependent variable, and (e) outcomes of the study. Finally, a discussion about the efficacy of using immersive VR to prepare teachers is offered that confirms that these types of technologies can enrich and enhance learning opportunities for future teachers, but research in this area is greatly lacking.
