Virtual Reality

The most important aspect of virtual reality in education for me is the building of an instance or place that allows the students to become a first-hand witness to what happened.  Virtual reality will allow for real-time assessment of the knowledge students have and apply to real world situations.  It is easy for me to create a textbook answer on paper, but virtual reality allows the student to be put in the actual situation and respond to the stimulus.  Students like the look of the virtual world and are motivated to participate in the activities assigned there.  Because the impossible is possible there, students have the opportunity to think outside of the box and create new and original solutions to age-old problems.
