School/Teacher/Parent Fear and Resistance

Fear and resistance to Games and VR technology is a common barrier faced by all technology acceptance. However, the strong association of games and VR with entertainment and leisure, exacerbate the fears. Addiction to devices, technology and games are concerns of parents. Teachers and principals have expressed reluctance to participate in research using these technologies based on parents fears.

Define the barrier if it has not been defined yet OR expand on the current definition if you believe that is necessary. Learner-, context-, and/or situation-specific conditions may be relevant here.

Illuminate any concrete examples of the barrier in action.

Pinpoint the technical limitations involved, if applicable.

Imagine potential solutions to knock down the barrier.

Scan any relevant literature you are aware of that relates to the barrier; what are the most pressing overall themes you observe from the literature? (Share any direct URLs.)

Ask any questions that are critical for addressing in order to knock down the barrier.
