mmersive technologies like VR, AR and MR have seen a massive expansion of use and a considerable amount of hype over the past couple of years. It’s no doubt that VR is the next big thing, but where can we find the evidence to make sound decisions for our educational adoption of these technologies? We can compare the amount of buzz that VR has been receiving to the likes of 3D TV a few years back, however unlike 3D TV, which never really became affordable, the current adoption of VR is demonstrating the exact opposite. The technology itself has been around for decades having being used in flight simulations to train pilots. Now VR is accessible for most, with a single person being able to wear a personal device costing less than £200 (or even cheaper using a high-end mobile phone). This level of accessibility has motivated the industry to develop software for more cost-effective ways of using VR such as Google Cardboard. The content is also available too - with the creation of targeted learning modules for the entire science and maths curricula for different countries. Such use of VR as a supplement to learning will help it develop a more mainstream position as the technology delivers sophisticated software and hardware at more competitive prices.
