49. Understanding our Species at Risk from their Viewpoint

District:  No. 6. (Rocky Mountain)

How can VR/AR (Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality) provide students and schools new opportunities to “create context, and interact with our surroundings, and consult with many specialists that work in our valley”? Using new technology and problem-based learning to interact in new ways with place is generating new understandings through student inquiries into the human “footprint” in this new project at schools in Invermere and Golden, B.C.

As its initial project artifact and documentation, this project has shared Species at Risk: A look at how AR/VR can impact empathy for a threatened species (PDF opens in a new window).

Here is this project’s 2018-2019 final report (opens in new tab).
