The article is devoted to the problem of using immersive technologies in primary education. It was found that immersive technologies have rapidly developed in recent years from doubtfully promising to trendy and used everywhere. It has been proven that their introduction into the educational process of the New Ukrainian School is a need today and a factor in improving the quality of education. The purpose of the article is determined: to study the peculiarities of the use of immersive technologies in primary education. The essence of immersive technologies has been clarified. The components of immersive technologies are highlighted: real (objective), augmented (added) and virtual reality. The qualitative characteristics of the use of immersive technologies in primary education have been determined. Examples of the use of immersive technologies in the process of studying various educational fields of primary education are given, in particular: language and literature, mathematics, natural sciences, informatics, technology, social and health care, civics and history, art and physical education. It was determined that the use of immersive technologies in primary classes may include: virtual tours, virtual laboratories, AR-books, AR-games, 3D modeling. Some applications of immersive technologies for use in primary education are proposed. In the process of studying the features of immersive technologies in primary education, the advantages and disadvantages of their use were determined. It was found that immersive technologies contribute to the improvement of the quality of the educational process, making it more interactive, adaptable and exciting for schoolchildren; expand learning opportunities; contribute to a better understanding of complex concepts; stimulate motivation and interest in learning, memory and concentration, creativity and activity of younger schoolchildren. It was found that the use of immersive technologies in education significantly expands the toolkit of a modern specialist.
