Math Reality: Virtual Reality. A new way of teaching: educational aspects
If we ask our pupils what emotion they associate school with, “boredom” would probably be the answer (Larson & Richards 1991, Mora 2011). Bored students can face consequences such as low attentiveness (Farmer & Sundberg 1986), less effort (Pekrun, Goetz, Daniels, Stupnisky & Perry 2010), negative affect (Harris 2000) and shallow information processing, that often lead to low grades and drop out (Dube & Orpinas, 2009, Wasson, 1981). Boredom has also a negative effect on cognitive and metacognitive skills, preventing students to reach their potential.
