Evidence for embodied cognition in immersive virtual environments using a second language learning environment

Jack Ratcliffe, Laurissa Tokarchuk
2020 2020 IEEE Conference on Games (CoG)  
Immersive virtual environments (IVEs) are increasingly being explored as potential educational tools.  ...  It also finds that the benefit does not correlate with motivation or presence ratings, suggesting that embodiment-induced motivation or immersion is not the cause of the learning enhancements, and therefore  ...  Immersive virtual environments Immersive virtual environments (IVEs) are increasingly explored as a potential tool for learning.  ...

The Role of Haptics in Immersive Telecommunication Environments

M. Reiner
2004 IEEE transactions on circuits and systems for video technology (Print)  
This paper explores the role of haptics in immersive telecommunication applications and analyzes the contribution of haptics to the sense of presence in a variety of applications.  ...  Based on the concept of embodied presence, a new construct, resonance between the human cognitive-body system and the streaming sensory information from the environment, is suggested to be a principal  ...  Yet the sense of presence is absent, since the environment does not match the sensory patterns learned in the physical environment, where the perceptual-sensory system evolved. VI.  ...

Jonathan Z. Bakdash, Jason S. Augustyn, Dennis R. Proffitt
2006 Proceedings of the 3rd symposium on Applied perception in graphics and visualization - APGV '06  
Participants learned the location of five targets by freely exploring a desktop large-scale VE of a city on either a small (25" diagonally) or large (72" diagonally) screen.  ...  This finding is believed to be due to the more immersive nature of large displays.  ...  Introduction Physically large displays are becoming increasingly popular, presumably because the immersive nature of large displays results in a greater feeling of presence or a sense of "being there".  ...
