The recently developed technology of 360° video provides opportunities for teachers and teacher candidates to explore both the classroom environment and the teaching and learning process. In this paper, a systematic review has been conducted to better understand the use of 360° videos in teacher education. The study focuses on the reasons why and how 360° videos are used, as well as the impacts on the noticing abilities of teacher trainees. The review demonstrates how 360° videos are a preferred method of overcoming the limitations of standard video as they are able to provide a more realistic and authentic experience. The review employs a variety of videos of different duration that explore various research domains. It was concluded that 360° videos better support various skills, including teacher candidates’ noticing, when used in a virtual reality (VR) environment.
