Halls Head College 7th graders have shown off their learnings about ancient Rome in a not-so-ancient way.
The students adopted the practice of studying virtual reality and have shown their findings in a statewide resource technology showcase.
Halls Head students presented their innovation alongside other schools and key members of the resource sector.
As part of their studies, students researched and researched ancient Rome, creating artifacts that later captured images from 360-degree photographs.
Fully involved in their learning experience: students went on to sequencing, editing, programming and creating voice-overs.
HASS professor Hayden Brown said the images were then uploaded to a cutting-edge VR editing platform to create an experience that could be shared with others.
“Our students were the creators and developers of this project, which is much more powerful when it comes to learning,” he said.
Halls Head college students were able to create a VR gallery exhibition from ancient Rome that embraced a new modern form of project presentations.
The virtual reality program will be expanded and developed, and students will show more work at the end of the year at the STEAM “IT takes a Spark” conference.
Halls Head University Director Bronwyn White said the most advanced technologies and unique global, tertiary and global partnerships are part of its strategy to build authentic and engaging learning opportunities that prepare students for success. beyond school.
STEM is an integrated part within the curriculum and where we can combine it with real world partnerships, both the relevance and value of learning expands.
