Abstract

This chapter introduces the technology of virtual reality as an educational tool. It argues that virtual reality, combined with multimedia technologies and in support of different learning styles, offers potential help in teaching environments. The authors describe different examples of applications of virtual reality in different kinds of schools (primary schools, high schools, and universities) and in different countries (USA, Italy, Morocco, Romania, and Switzerland). They hope that by understanding the characteristics of this technology and its use in the education field, teachers will be able to use virtual reality in future teaching endeavors.
