Along with the rapid development of technology, the world of education is certainly directed to be able to create competent human resources who will play a role in creating new technologies in the future. For this reason, learning is expected to increase student motivation. Students who are motivated in learning will certainly easily spend their time honing their abilities. In addition to learning motivation, spatial ability is also very much needed as a basic skill that students must have in new days. Of course the two variables can be developed through several learning approaches. One of them is the use of virtual reality technology. This research aims to show why virtual reality can improve student motivation and spatial ability. Data was obtained through literature reviews from reputable scientific journals and books. From the results of the study, it was found that virtual reality increases student motivation and spatial ability. This is inseparable from the concept of virtual reality technology that combines virtual access that looks real so as to make learning more interesting.
