ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to review the recent domestic literature on applying virtual reality(VR) based educations for students with disabilities and to identify research trends and practical implications. The search procedures through the database system were implemented to find the proper research published from 2000 to 2017 and a total of 28 studies were selected. The results identified that most of subjects were elementary school-age students and were students with intellectual disabilities or physical disabilities. Also between-group design was mostly implemented and most of data collection methods was behavioral observation. Types of VR technology were divided into immersive, non-immersive, and third-person VR. The results of review indicated that most of studies used the third person VR type. Additionally, behavioral, cognitive, and emotional effects were identified as the effectiveness of intervention using VR technology. Furthermore, considerations to apply virtual reality based educational programs for students with disabilities were suggested.
