Educational Affordances of Mobile Virtual Reality

Minocha, Shailey and Tudor, Ana-Despina (2017). Educational Affordances of Mobile Virtual Reality. In: Interaction Design Centre Seminar Series, Invited Talk, 31 Oct 2017, Middlesex University London, UK.


As a part of Google-funded research programme, we have been investigating the role of Google Expeditions, a smartphone-driven virtual reality educational app, in learning and teaching. In this presentation, we will discuss the empirical derivation of educational affordances of Google Expeditions. Through case studies from our data, we will examine how these affordances facilitate inquiry-based learning, bridge virtual fieldwork with physical field trips in geography and science education, and support experiential learning via simulations.
