Abstract: This paper explores the possibilities of using a Virtual Reality for cooperative idea generation and then attempts to assess the relationship between a student’s cooperation and the design process, learning experiences and the pedagogy employed by the teacher. The researchers based their research around the following questions:
- How could collaborative idea generation be incorporated within the VRE?
- How does this relate to teaching and learning within the lesson?
- How do communications during the lesson support students’ work?
Keywords: Idea generation; Virtual Reality Environment; multiple communication; cooperative idea generation; cooperative learning; user interface; remote observation, and screen captured videos.
