Poster summary

New, improved, and consumer-priced head-mounted displays opened-up possibilities for using immersive virtual reality field trips in geography teaching and learning. Nowadays, due to advancements in cameras and mobile and immersive technologies, teachers and students are in the position to use and capture 360° panoramas and video materials to create place-based learning experiences. However, the place of immersive virtual trips in school geography is still an open question. Are they a replacement, or a supplement to traditional field trips and fieldwork, or both? The purpose of this paper is to answer that question and to provide insights into creation, evaluation, and integration of immersive virtual trips at all levels of geography education.
