New and emerging forms of interactive storytelling and design are impacting fields from medicine to journalism – and education, too. Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), 360˚ video, and even new approaches to existing analogue and digital formats enable us to learn about and see the world in new ways.
But, 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 production guide, you will learn how to create immersive 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 immersive media production using our guiding resources.
