Virtual reality is impacting fields from medicine to journalism — and education, too. Through simulations and virtual field trips, virtual reality lets us step into the shoes of a young girl in a refugee camp, investigate ocean acidification, witness the wonder of the Great Barrier Reef, and more.
We can do more than consume content with these new technologies: we can also be creators, and produce immersive media that makes an impact.
In this project guide, you will learn how to create 360° media and engage with an issue you care about. You’ll take action, and make a difference.
Get started with the guide in the sections below, or visit the full Table of Contents to see all practices and resources.
Start by identifying big ideas you care about and using essential questioning to develop a challenge you want to take action on.
Investigate your challenge and learn about 360 film production using our guiding resources.
This guide follows the format of Challenge Based Learning, a framework that allows students and teachers to identify meaningful challenges, learn deeply about the content in order to develop solutions, take action to positively impact their communities.
Check out our glossary to learn about media terminology. And while the guide focuses on 360° video, you can also use it with other media, including traditional film and photography, augmented reality, coded virtual reality, and more.
