Teaching Electric Circuits in High School with Virtual Reality

Abstract

Recent studies have revealed major difficulties in learning the contents of electric circuits. One of the factors contributing to this problem there is that most methods for the teaching of this content aren’t attractive and use the traditional tools that don’t show the facts really surrounding this phenomenon. The use of simulators can improve and one of the areas that can create this kind of interaction is the Virtual Reality. With this necessity in the electric circuits teaching and a great resource in the area of Virtual Reality, it’s proposed to implement the use of Virtual Reality as a complementary tool to the teaching of electric circuits. This tool can be described as a threedimensional interactive virtual environment that simulates the work and analysis of simple electrical circuits and aims to minimize the problem of difficulty of learning in teaching them.
