Virtual reality (VR) can be used to enhance students’ learning and engagement in a learning environment. VR acts on the foundation of creating a virtual world and allows users not only to see it but also to interact with it. I had a training on the application of VR in education on 3.3.2020 at Practicum, Pariisinkatu 3, 00550 Helsinki. Stina, a VR trainer at Practicum told us about the use of VR and the application of VR at their institution. On 6.3.2020 we had another training at Folkhälsan, Topeliuksenkatu 20, 00250 Helsinki. Finally, we had an opportunity to apply VR at the 70th anniversary of Haaga-Helia School of Vocational Teacher Education, Pasila campus, Ratapihantie 13, 00520 Helsinki on 9.3.2020 from 13:00 to 15:00. I let the guest to use the VR and have an experience of the virtual world. I had explained its importance in different respects (education, training, counselling, etc.).
