increasing evidence indicates that practising cognitive abilities in computerised environments and especially in the 3D Immersive Virtual Reality (3D-ivr) environment, significantly improves cognitive achievements. This chapter's focus is on the effects of two spatial computer environment characteristics: Rotation of Information Resources (RIR) and Shift of Viewing Angles (SVA) on cognitive modifiability in a Dynamic assessment (Da) procedure. The Da procedure used included three phases: pre-teaching, teaching, and post-teaching. The measure used was analogies subtest (an) from the Cognitive Modifiability Battery (CmB). The problems consisted of dimensions of color, height, number, and position. The teaching phase was based on mediated learning experience strategies of problem solving. Children in Grades 1 and 2 (n = 73) were randomly assigned to either the 3D-ivr or 2D mode of presentation. The findings indicate that the frequency of use of sva contributed significantly to pre-to post-teaching improvement on the an subtest. Cognitive modifiability was significantly derived from improvements in test dimensions of height and position, which are specifically connected to spatial perception. The findings are discussed in relation to the contribution of the use of spatial computer environment characteristics (sva and rir) in Da, cognitive maps formation, and cognitive performance
