Virtual reality (VR) is becoming more popular in education and training. Teaching and learning methodologies are changing to ensure that learners can develop highly valuable skills and competencies in virtual environments.

VR allows for more powerful visualisation, improves educational interaction, increases cooperation and improves students' practical knowledge.

Learning through play, firsthand experiences, and applied knowledge produces a more appealing atmosphere for students and results in considerably more effective skill sets.

Innovations like virtual reality (VR) are disrupting the status quo, making education less conventional and expanding further education. VR has reached a tipping point that requires leaders, educators, regulators, and other stakeholders to take a proactive approach in order to invest in future generations and ride the wave of change.

In this Emerging Technologies briefing, hosted by MKAI.org, we hear from industry experts about the latest trends and opportunities with VR in education. This includes practical steps and success stories from the sector.
