Teaching physics using virtual reality

Savage, Craig; McGrath, Dominic; McIntyre, Timothy J; Wegener, Margaret; Williamson, Michael


We present an investigation of game-like simulations for physics teaching. We report on the effectiveness of the interactive simulation "Real Time Relativity" for learning special relativity. We argue that the simulation not only enhances traditional learning, but also enables new types of learning that challenge the traditional curriculum. The lessons drawn from this work are being applied to the development of a simulation for enhancing the learning of quantum mechanics.
