Image of the Week: Student Created 360/VR Presentations

The highest level of Bloom’s Taxonomy is creation, where students take information (both previously known & learned) and present it in a new way. ThingLink’s 360/VR editor is the perfect tool to create these immersive presentations. Our image of the week comes to us from Michael Mohammad‘s students.

Michael’s students created virtual content for their ‘personal learning projects’. They utilized Google Slides to assemble the content for each of the hotspots. The image below is an animation of one student’s work. This ThingLink 360/VR is designed to be viewed in stereoscopic mode, i.e. through a VR viewer like Google Cardboard.

 

“We just need to let students loose to design in these spaces.”  

-Michael Mohammad
