  • Paul Moore University of Wollongong

Abstract

Though Virtual Reality is at a relatively rudimentary stage of development, many argue it is destined to influence both educational theory and practice. Active research into the educational implications of VR for education is underway and mainly focuses on the phenomena related to the immersion of individuals in a simulated environment. This paper surveys the research into VR and focuses on the implications of immersive virtual worlds for learning and teaching.
