Spatial learning and wayfinding in an immersive environment: the digital fulldome

Article English OPEN
Hedge, Craig; Weaver, Ruth; Schnall, Simone;

Previous work has examined whether immersive technologies can benefit learning in virtual environments, but the potential benefits of technology in this context are confounded by individual differences such as spatial ability. We assessed spatial knowledge acquisition i... View more
