Special Issue in Sustainability: Impact of COVID-19 on Education
As immersive technologies are becoming more user-friendly and affordable, they tend to represent very promising technological tools for education.
Technological development such as augmented/virtual or mixed reality will affect education, having a major impact both for the educators and the students.
Students can make use of virtual spaces, teleport to new words, become immersed in different locations around the world without even leaving their desks, or become content creators via AR experiences or mixed reality outdoor activities, creating new opportunities in educational activities even for students with mobility impairments.
On the other hand, educators can now access different types of highly engaging educational material, even for topics that initially seemed of low interest to the students, due to a plethora of pervasive immersive apps. Collaborations, skill transfer and creativity are reformed via the immersive technologies as a new set of competencies seems to arise.
This Special Issue aims to compile a comprehensive review of educational use cases of XR technologies across the globe, highlighting the benefits, the risks and the limitations and adoption challenges of immersive technologies.
