In this paper, we review past empirical research studies on the use of tactile precision in three dimensional immersive learning environments. A number of questions guided our review 1) What is the potential for tactile precision in 3D multimodal environments (drawing on literature from range of disciplines including IT, gaming, engineering, health sciences and education); 2) How is this being imagined and explored for education-related purposes in different disciplines; 4) How have learners responded to the potential for more tactile/kinaesthetic learning and 5) What are the gaps in the research?
