The Use of Virtual Reality in Learning Civil Engineering Nurul Rahmah binti Rosli @ Wasli University Malaysia Sarawak, Kota Samarahan, Sarawak. Abstract Many studies have been conducted on the use of virtual reality in education and training. In education, new technology is used to enhance the learning process. Mobile has become one of the technology offers educators a way to communicate with students using the appropriate application for learning. Virtual reality has reached a sufficient level of development for it to be considered in innovative applications such as education, training and research in higher education.
Gamification is the idea of using games to engage learners in the process of developing knowledge and/or retaining data. Such networks include abcmouse.com and jumpstart.com which have been instituted to create a technological atmosphere of learning outside of the traditional classroom. The creation of internet gaming networks do not stand alone, their also lies the gaming software in the form of CD-ROMs and cartridges with the same intended purpose. This type of electronic learning is often used in classrooms in correlation or as a reinforcer to curriculum content. When E-learning services are used in c... ... middle of paper ... ...

As educators it is important for teachers to acknowledge the significance and importance of the emerging technological learning style in which students are becoming accustomed too, which is the “click and go” generation. This new styled learner will be technologically savvy, would obtain most of their information electronically, computer-based learners, socially interacting with others through email or the internet and would understand how to communicate information through the integration of various technologies. Through the use of ICT, teachers ... ... middle of paper ... ... model of teaching and learning to an autonomous and independent learning model that encourages critical thinking and creativity with independent research. Learners would be expected to collect, select, analyse, organise, extend, transform and present knowledge using ICT in authentic and active learning model. Teachers are expected to create a new flexible and open learning environment with interactive, experiential and multimedia based delivery system.
This statement supports the claim that technology helps in the learning process of the student. Technology has various different effects on education, one of them being enhancing the student 's learning process. It enhances the learning process of the student by challenging them intellectually. “Although we have adopted technology in many aspects of education today, a comprehensive infrastructure for learning is necessary to move us beyond the radical model of educators and students in classrooms to a learning model that brings together teaching teams and students in classrooms, labs, libraries, museums, workplaces, and homes- anywhere in the world where people have access devices and an adequate Internet connection” (Loertscher). This statement supports the claim that technology enhances the learning process of the student.

Having received feedback during the testing phase of the project I would make the answer to the question bigger and bolder, for pupils to clearly identify the answer. Adding pictures to provide a visual aid would also be an enhancement for pupils.
INTRODUCTION The assignment below talks about the positive and negative impacts on how technology is being used on education. Technology has revolutionized how individuals communicate and learn in modern aspects of life. Teachers should not fear open-source technology. The open-source technologies are secure, stable and able to compete with other platforms. Students in schools can use online portfolios to allow them to express creativity for difficult to access subjects.
It talks about how we can use digital resources to support modern learning and that different apps, sites and browsers can help learning languages in a whole lot easier way and more interactively than the old typical rigid means that been used in earlier years. It takes us through a journey demonstrating different digital tools that we can inherit and imply into our daily education system by using apps, social websites,
When thinking about digital models and simulations, they could help teachers to expand on concepts which are either too small or too big to demonstrate well in a physical classroom (Buckingham, 2013). Through the incorporation of technology in learning, students have the ability to set up lessons for language which include native speakers who are from other countries and attend lessons via video conferencing. The process of learning from the native speakers, the learning via social interaction, and exposure of students to the perspectives of other student’s culture all are incredible educational benefits. Setting up the exchange of language is usually a natural process just like making a video conferencing call. Besides, incorporation of technology in learning promotes more efficient assessment.
Virtual Reality Learning Environments: Potentials and Challenges Computer graphics technology enables us to create a remarkable variety of digital images and displays that, given the right conditions, effectively enrich education [Clark 1983]. Real-time computer graphics are an essential component of the multi-sensory environment of Virtual Reality (VR). This article addresses the unique characteristics of emerging VR technology and the potential of virtual worlds as learning environments. I will describe several key attributes of VR environments and discuss them in relationship to educational theory and pedagogical practice. I will then identify three challenges that must be met before VR can be integrated into educational settings: cost, usability, and fear of the technology.
