Immersive Stories for VR for the ThingLink Teacher Challenge

View channel & watch it grow!

We are pleased to begin curating our collection of immersive stories for viewing in a VR headset and happy to share this growing collection with our community.

We are happy to have received a whole batch of wonderful immersive stories at the end of this week! The goal of this challenge is to create an image that can be viewed easily in a VR headset, and to create a useful collection, we are sorting through them to make sure the tags work in the headset.

We created a handy chart to help participants understand the types of tags that work in a VR headset. View it here, or on the ThingLink Teacher Challenge page.

Using a 360 Image to Tell an Immersive Story for VR

pedagogy and ideas from the designer and facilitator of The ThingLink Teacher Challenge

The 5th Annual ThingLink Teacher Challenge is up and running! If you haven’t joined us yet, this is a great time to start. The early adopters are making their way through each of the published activities and we are excited to be collecting results to share.

We started our introduction to ThingLink’s 360 image editor with a familiar topic, telling a story. Walk into any classroom in the US, and you will find a teacher with a story map, storyboard, or planning guide, and an instructional method. We’ve learned that our students write better and they create better multimedia projects when they have a plan. For creating your first ThingLink, you will appreciate the plan to save you a lot of time, especially when recording.

Don’t Sweat It! Diving Into Thinglink 360

by Andrew Fehnel

I have been lucky to be a part of the Thinglink Certified Educators community for a few years now and every year I see the creativity of this group ratchet up. It can be intimidating to see what others have created and then think: how can I possibly do something like that? What I’ve found is that Thinglink 360’s ability to create engaging and immersive presentations does not take years of practice or a degree in nuclear science. In fact, the ability to create material using the editing tool is accessible to all ability levels.
