3D and virtual reality resources for effective teaching and learning of science: Practical examples and educational implications

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In this paper, we shall introduce an array of 3D and VR technologies which have been employed by the teachers and students of the HKIEd Science Department for developing learning and teaching materials in a wide spectrum of science topics. Furthermore, we will discuss the educational values and effective application of those 3D and/or VR resources in classroom teaching and learning of Science and present some preliminary results from the questionnaire survey on the student-teachers’ receptivity of using those resources and technologies for their future teaching of science.
