VIRTUAL REALITY PROJECTS WITH CO-SPACES
While working alongside teachers at Heretaunga Intermediate, I challenged students to create a digital tool to teach someone something they were passionate about. I held a series of workshops introducing them to some possible digital creation tools they could use.
The students all chose Co-Spaces to create a virtual reality tutorial. Two students chose to team up to teach people about how cars work. In Co-Spaces they built a mechanics garage filled with different vehicles, images of car parts, and even models of themselves! Students then coded a script so that their models could walk the user through the garage and stop at each part of the car to explain how it works.
This project required collaboration as well as the ability to construct and present knowledge on their chosen topic. Students had to think carefully about their end user and the user-friendly nature of their tutorial.
