<font color=#AA0000> VIRTUAL REALITY AND SIMULATION BASED EDUCATION


</font> <font size=6><font color=#550099>VR technology<</font>/font> is an integrated technology of computer hardware and software that requires the user to be fully immersed into the computer-generated, real-time, and 3D virtual environment as an inside participant to look, listen, manipulate, interact, feel, speak, and even smell if it is possible. It may be a networked or a stand-alone technology.
This technology can be used as a good training tool. Already the VR technology is implemented as a training tool in military, navy, pilot training etc. This can also be implemented in education to train students more practically.

VR Applications in Education
Many researchers and educational practitioners believe that VR technology offers strong benefits that can support education. For some, VR's ability to facilitate constructivist learning activities is the key issue. Others focus on the potential to provide alternative forms of learning that can support different types of learners, such as visually oriented learners. Some of the research seeks to locate learning within a very general educational setting. Some studies have investigated the impact of immersion on effectiveness of VR. Overall, most of the studies seek to investigate whether VR is an effective educational technology.
Some of the research on applications of VR for learning involves short term studies and other research is based on longitudinal case studies, while researchers are developing virtual worlds for school use.
