VR headset learning may hinder memory retention

Virtual reality applications in educational settings are becoming more widespread throughout the world, with the emergency services in particular quickly becoming one of the fastest growing adopters of commercial VR to train users in settings that they may not experience in practical training or simulation sessions. However, a new study carried out by researchers at the Toyohashi University of Technology and the Tokyo Denki University in Japan have claimed that virtual reality learning through motion-tracking head mounted displays could have a negative effect on memory retention compared to conventional methods in video learning applications.



Hologram-like device brings objects to life with ultrasound...
