Virtual reality (VR), the world’s most advanced learning technology, is an innovative new way to teach and engage your students.  It allows students to step through the computer screen into 3-D, interactive worlds. By putting on a special headset and glove, students enter a world of educational adventure.


VR labs extend school boundaries in an economical manner. Schools that could not afford “luxuries” like science and language labs now see students experimenting and exploring in VR labs at a fraction of the cost. Because VR is based on the same PCs already in schools, it is within the means of every school to greatly increase student achievement.


As all educators know, information is the foundation.  Below are white papers, journal articles, and magazine articles about virtual reality in education.
