    • Defying reality: The inside story of the virtual reality revolution by David M. Ewalt
      “A fascinating exploration of the history, development, and future of virtual reality, a technology with world-changing potential, written by award-winning journalist and author David Ewalt, stemming from his 2015 Forbes cover story about the Oculus Rift and its creator Palmer Luckey.” – Description from publisher
    • Experience on demand: What virtual reality is, how it works, and what it can do by Jeremy Bailenson
      “Virtual reality is able to effectively blur the line between reality and illusion, granting us access to any experience imaginable. These experiences, ones that the brain is convinced are real, will soon be available everywhere. In Experience on Demand, Jeremy Bailenson draws upon two decades spent researching the psychological effects of VR to help readers understand its upsides and possible downsides. He offers expert guidelines for interacting with VR, and describes the profound ways this technology can be put to use to hone our performance, help us recover from trauma, improve our learning, and even enhance our empathic and imaginative capacities so that we treat others and ourselves better.” – Description from publisher

  • Learning transported: Augmented, virtual, and mixed reality for all classrooms
    “Teachers nationwide are adopting immersive technology ― devices and software that provide augmented, virtual and mixed reality experiences ― to enable students to go on virtual field trips, manipulate 3D objects and augment the world around them. Immersive technology resources can be far less costly than many believe, but there are issues school districts should resolve before making purchases and implementing this technology.” – Description from publisher
