Summer VR Challenge: Mapping Our Digital Selves

Some participants in the ThingLink Summer VR Challenge have successfully completed the first activity, Design Your Digital Self. Meet the educators who are leading the way and connect with them. The map will be updated with additional Digital Selves weekly throughout the challenge.

Several participants have asked where to turn in your Digital Selves. There is a Google form built into the lesson, also accessible here:

Turn in Your Digital Self

There is still time to Take the ThingLink Summer VR Challenge to pilot the use of our new 360/VR Tag Editing tool. Sign up today and we will walk you through the steps to get started creating interactive 360/VR lessons!

Next Lesson: Week 2: Vocabulary Across All Languages

To prepare to create an interactive 360/VR lesson, you will want to spend some time searching for images and continuing to think about attribution. Here are 3 suggested resources:

360 Images for Schools, a Flickr group by Kathy Schrock

If you have a camera or app capable of taking 360 images, please join Kathy’s group to contribute your properly licensed photos for reuse for education. You may also use any of the images submitted by educators, but we hope you will explore ways to create your own images and contribute them to the group as well. Kathy has a treasure trove of expertise and advice and the group is clearly organized to help educators embrace 360 photography so please spend some time on Kathy’s site.

Equirectangular Flicker Group

This group has 17.9 equirectangular images that have been resized with the correct ration of 2:1. This means these images are sized correctly and ready for uploading. Please explore this page when searching for images.
