  "description": "<p>This paper proposes the use of a Virtual Reality (VR) based approach to improve teacher education and life-long professional development. Through constant training in real-life based situations but within a safe three-dimensional virtual school environment, teachers are given the opportunity to experience and learn how to react to different types of incidents that may take place in a school environment. The current paper presents the design cycle that was followed for the implementation of the VR teacher training system. The effectiveness of the proposed approach is demonstrated with a case study that aimed to promote teachers&rsquo; understanding of student&rsquo;s problematic situations related to substance use. As part of the experimental investigation the impact of the VR system on participants&rsquo; emotions and mood states is evaluated through EEG measurements, heart rate recordings and self-reported data. Results indicate significant changes to participant&rsquo;s negative emotional and mood states, suggesting that the scenario and the VR experience had a strong impact on them.</p>",
