Using Virtual Reality (VR) to Engage Youth, Seniors & Community Storytellers

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join Kathy Bisbee, Founder of the Public VR Lab and executive director at Brookline Interactive Group, and her team, to understand how emerging media tools are an effective mechanism to recruit youth, adults, and interest in your digital storytelling, outreach, community technology, and digital inclusion programs. 
Well-designed immersive reality experiences can invoke a powerful sense of wonder and empathy and have a transformational effect on the viewer. In this half-day, hands-on training, you will learn how to use these emerging media tools to create immersive stories and applying it to your digital inclusion work. 
The session will introduce attendees to XR: an umbrella term for VR (virtual reality), AR (augmented reality), and MR (mixed reality), and how these new media technologies are changing how we tell stories, engage participants, and embody a cognitive experience that provokes interest, empathy, and action in our inclusion work.

The session will offer hands-on experiences of 360, VR and AR, show examples of storytelling projects in emerging media, and help practitioners understand the value, outcomes in community-based XR, as well as the equipment and training needed to implement programs in your community. Participants will learn how to use 360 cameras, understand equipment needs, creation tools available, and how to make emerging media programs accessible to all through community-based storytelling and XR demonstrations.
