Immersive Learning

There are many reasons as to why one should incorporate immersive learning into their educational/workplace environment. One way to incorporate immersive learning is by having scholars develop interpersonal skills when obtaining a sense of empathy for people in a real-world scenario (Vojnovski, 2022). Another way to incorporate immersive learning is by promoting collaboration amongst learners (Mulders, et. al., 2020). The last way is to help learners retain information through scaffolding (Mulders, et. al., 2020). All in all, immersive learning creates meaningful experiences for the learner taking a particular course. Would you incorporate immersive learning in your classroom?
