This paper seeks to explore the virtual states that may be represented through educational practice. On one side of the equation, these states are part of a system philosophy that introduces technology into the learning process, and therefore creates mediated spaces through which we may develop our mental capacities (virtualities). On the other lies our individual proclivity to virtualise or imagine states that may relate to each other in complex, abstract manners (virtual reality). I have turned to the work of Gilles Deleuze in order to pick our way through these educational possibilities. His ideas offer a complex understanding of virtual states, and one which may be applied to the ambiguous presentations of virtual reality as a uniform and trouble free educational resource.
