This talk will give a brief overview on the current state of VR, in terms of the technology and overall use, before delving into how VR relates to learning. In particular I will focus on the "Reverse Field Trip" model of VR, and how in the next few years VR won't be replacing classrooms but augmenting them.

At the same time, I will discuss the limitations and downsides of VR as it relates to learning.
