EDUCATION SECTOR IS DRIVING THE FUTURE OF VR IN TUTORING, STEM DEVELOPMENT AND DISTANCE EDUCATION
gaming is expanding educational trends. The advantage of VR is the impression of total immersion in the game, while AR contributes the capacity to transform
is the evolution of traditional reading and
writing materials that support learning (books,
photocopies, etc.) toward a new ecosystem of
digital resources. The growing availability of
VR-based video-games also implies a
revolution in the materials offered in order to
participate in an immersion experience and not
just look up information
students can explore the AR-
or VR-based learning content in any order,
whenever and wherever they wish, without
being restricted by class schedules and the
classroom, as long as they have the
appropriate digital device. It offers the
advantage (and the challenge) that anywhere
can become a learning scenario and the
activity can be designed in the most suitable
simulated or real environment for its
One of the criticisms of
the intensive use of learning is, precisely,
the absence of a pedagogical plan, which
integrates the resources offered by AR
and VR within a sequence designed
specifically for the development of
competencies. This is why some authors
prefer a blended model that combines the
virtues of face-to-face learning (physical
presence of a teacher, performance
assessment, feedback from an expert)
with those of online learning.
AR and VR can
generate learning environments with the
person who is learning as the protagonist,
without the need for a specific program of
study or the guidance of a teacher,
according to the advocates of the concept
of expanded education.
