The educational world is always altering as new technology is being utilised to explore new teaching methods. Immersive learning has grown in popularity in recent years. It has revolutionised the educational sector, especially in primary and secondary schools. Various immersive learning techniques are changing how education is delivered, in addition to primary and secondary schools.
What is immersive learning?
Immersive technologies have been recognised as an educational tool since at least the 1990s due to their capacity to present information in novel ways and their potential to provide virtual experiences that broaden access to educational opportunities that would otherwise be limited by cost or physical distance. In addition, immersive technology devices and applications have recently become accessible and simple enough for them to be utilised in schools.
The immersive learning experience integrates traditional teaching methods with modern technology, and offers learners an engaging and interactive environment, allowing them to experience and explore real-world scenarios in a virtual world. It promotes critical thinking, creativity and problem-solving. It encourages learners to take responsibility for their learning, emphasising the experience of learning rather than checking whether students’ answers are correct or incorrect.
With the help of immersive technology such as virtual and augmented reality and mixed reality, immersive learning methods can provide students with an engaging experience that is more engaging and stimulating than traditional methods of learning. Immersive learning can help students develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed for success in today’s world, with applications that range from technical training and STEM to arts and healthcare.
Benefits of immersive learning
Immersive learning offers several benefits to both students and educators. These include:
Immersive learning technologies
How immersive learning can be delivered in education is almost limitless as technology continues to expand and educational institutions embrace new possibilities.
Augmented Reality (AR) uses computer-generated images and sounds to enhance a learner’s real-world experience. It allows students to explore and engage in real-world scenarios in a virtual setting, and discover new ways of exploring and applying their knowledge.
Virtual Reality (VR) immerses the learner in a completely computer-generated environment, providing the opportunity to explore new environments and gain a deeper understanding of a particular topic or scenario. –
Mixed Reality (MR) combines real-world and computer-generated elements, allowing learners to explore and interact with real-world scenarios in a virtual environment.
