Immersive Virtual Reality as a Tool for Autistic Pupils and Teachers
ABOUT THE IVRAP PROJECT
The IVRAP project aims to teach students on the autism spectrum and learning difficulties how to ‘learn to learn’ by developing and assessing an Immersive Virtual Reality (IVR) educational tool.
The project brings together universities, and autism associations, professionals and NGOs across Europe to develop, disseminate, and assess the tool, conduct research and produce both a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Virtual Reality and Autism, and Policy Recommendations.
