The virtual simulation tools are used in order for students to engage in virtual laboratories and experiments as well as be virtually introduced to activities or places around the world at any point of time (past, present, future).
Some examples of the use of this type of tools in school are:
- Use of a virtual simulation tool to simulate science experiments to introduce students to the properties of electricity
- Use of a virtual simulation tool to graphically represent a mathematical equation
- Use a virtual simulation tool to allow students to walk through ancient monuments at the time that they were built and used
