Using Virtual Reality for Developing Design Communication

  title={Using Virtual Reality for Developing Design Communication},
  author={G{\'i}sli Thorsteinsson and Tom Page and Andrei Niculescu},
  journal={Studies in Informatics and Control},
This paper explores the possibilities of using a Virtual Reality for cooperative idea generation and then attempts to assess the relationship between a student’s cooperation and the design process, learning experiences and the pedagogy employed by the teacher. The researchers based their research around the following questions: 1. How could collaborative idea generation be incorporated within the VRE? 2. How does this relate to teaching and learning within the lesson? 3. How do communications… Expand
