    Public discussion Created by Tessa Gray

    In the CORE blog, Places in Memory Stephen Lowe talks about how the brain is wired for memory - for our survival. Now with low budget explorations in virtual reality, we can experience vicariously in a computer-generated environment. Stephen's challenge to educators is,

    ...to use VR to give students places where they can put memories, and to give them pathways along which they go. By all means use the Wow factor to grab their initial attention, but don’t fall into the trap of thinking that that is enough. Instead, aim to engage them at a much deeper level. Use it to deliver rich learning narratives, and attach those stories to vivid imagery, and an immersive sense of location.

    How can we embed powerful learning in the mind of our students using 3D gaming and virtual reality? Want to know more? There is a FREE upcoming online event hosted by Enabling e-Learning;
