  • Abstract:
    mmersive Virtual Learning Environments (IVLEs) are extensively used in training, but few rigorous scientifi c investigations regarding

    the transfer of learning have been conducted. Measurement of learning transfer through evaluative methods is key for determining

    the likelihood of equivalent performance post-training intervention. Research has shown that immersive virtual learning environments

    are advantageous for training psychomotor activities and spatial activities, but it is unclear whether these environments are benefi cial

    in memorizing a procedure. More important than the IVLE technology, however, is the ability of IVLEs to provide higher critical

    thinking for learners. IVLEs are often implemented through the use of game-based technology, which is argued to hold the promise

    for fostering critical thinking skills and other 21st century skills.
