Name of Workshop

Seeing the world through someone else’s eyes!

Who is it for

Primary and secondary teachers

Brief synopsis of workshop :

This session will be an introduction to virtual reality and 360 films, and will explore how the technology can enable you to see the world through someone else’s eyes. Delegates will see exotic locations and experience life in a refugee camp and learn how this technology can aid empathy, create an emotional connection with new material and encourage writing.

Delegates will then use some 360 cameras to create their own story, perhaps even live broadcasting in 360, if they’re brave enough!

Whilst not necessary, a mobile phone will enhance the experience in this workshop.

What you will get out of it:

Knowledge of emerging technologies and how they can create empathy and allow people to see the world from a new perspective. First hand experience with 360 cameras.

Profile of facilitator:

Nic is currently the academic deputy head at Bolton School Boys’ Division, but he has also been a senior leader in schools in both London and Blackburn. A teaching and learning specialist, Nic has a particular interest in how technology can aid learning, and be a force for good in the world.
