Galleries, Libraries, Archives, & Museums - Workshop 1: Online Library & Research Instruction with LibWizard Tutorials
Online Library & Research Instruction with LibWizard Tutorials
Stephanie C. Gillespie
Pellissippi State Community College, United States of America

Since 2017, we’ve created LibWizard tutorials to address equitable library and research instruction opportunities for online students, especially asynchronous ones. Despite our initial hesitancy, we have been delighted to find other benefits to offering them to all students, such as:
  • reach students whose instructors do not prefer guest lecturers or have no in-class time;
  • strengthen faculty relationships by collaborating to create or update tutorials;
  • Offer library and research instruction at students’ point of need;
  • provide instruction to students who miss the in-class session;
  • provide interactive lessons that include many types of materials;
  • have a solution ready when we cannot fulfill an instruction request;
  • increase our reach among students by 20-24% pre-Covid;
  • assess student’s research skills and how they contribute to course success and retention;
  • gather student feedback about which explanations or questions are unclear;
  • help us create student-driven FAQs;
  • collect quotes of student praise that can be used to market library services.
When the Covid pandemic hit, we were extremely grateful to have them ready to offer instructors while we considered solutions for live sessions online. In this session, we will discuss our experiences, lessons learned, and process for building, managing, and updating tutorials.

Galleries, Libraries, Archives, & Museums - Workshop 2: Drawing Equirectangular Perspectives for VR Panoramas with Eq A Sketch 360
Drawing Equirectangular Perspectives for VR Panoramas with Eq A Sketch 360
António Bandeira Araújo
Universidade Aberta, Portugal
 
In this workshop we will explore the construction of immersive environments in equirectangular perspective using the Eq A Sketch 360 software. Eq A Sketch 360 is a serious toy for spherical perspective drawing. It has two innovative features: a sliding geodesic grid and an equirectangular snap-to ruler. These tools turn equirectangular drawing into a proper perspective, where all lines and vanishing points may be drawn by hand, to create immersive environments from either observation or imagination. This contrasts with previous methods of equirectangular drawing, that either avoided perspective altogether by drawing directly in VR view, or were limited to fixed grid methods with ad-hoc estimation of measurements. Eq A Sketch both forces and helps the user to learn spherical perspective. We will show how to draw by hand with perfect control of proportions and bearings, to make standalone designs or constructions that can be mixed with 360-degree photography.

Knox Grammar Preparatory School, Australia
Watch the presentation video

Our primary technology framework has a driving vision that students learn to recognise the power that they, as an individual, possess to enact change in the world. Students investigate real-world scenarios where small changes at a local level create big impacts at a global level (Think Global, Act Local).
Learn about a diverse range of technical solutions for engaging the whole school community through a range of web-accessible platforms. Explore immersive and interactive learning experiences, virtual reality coding, WebXR platforms and augmented reality tools for showcasing student-generated solutions through whole-school inquiry frameworks.
This presentation will look at how students can use virtual and augmented reality through online and mobile platforms to transform the physical learning experience, showcase their understanding and retell events as part of an individualised learning journey.
See how to implement VR, AR and XR into a primary classroom environment while promoting student inquiry and providing quality feedback.
With the global focus on authentic synchronous and asynchronous experiences for all members of educational communities there has come a new era of immersive and experiential learning platforms which are accessible to all learners from Pre-Kindergarten through to University and beyond.
Web XR Platforms such as FrameVR.io and Virtual Reality coding applications such as CoSpaces are powerful yet lower barrier entry platforms for learners at any stage of education.
The session will demonstrate the deep use of these technologies through a structured primary years inquiry learning framework.

LCH W - 2 Augmenting Writing - An Exploration of Literacy In An Augmented World
During this session, participants will work through a series of activities which will demonstrate how to integrate augmented reality into Writing lessons. Through hands-on experiences, participants will explore the use of augmented reality to bring students writing, personally composed music and artworks alive creating an immersive experience for learners in the classroom. 

This is a unit of work focused on bringing together a range of key learning areas allowing for students to interact with learning in a range of different ways. It is expected that by the end of the session, participants will have developed their own story cube which can be used as a work sample if they choose to integrate this unit in their classroom 

This presentation is important and relevant as it allows for educators to understand how they can help students explore a range of skills including coding and content creation within augmented reality. By integrating these skills within writing, allows for an authentic exploration by redefining the task and increasing motivation and the development of future skills needed by students.

This workshop will take participants through step by step instructions on how to teach this unit in the classroom including composing music, creating digital artwork and creating an augmented reality experience. 

Participants will need to sign up for a free CoSpaces account to access using a trial code and download and print a Merge Cube.

Language, Culture, & Heritage - Workshop: Rhapsodies in the 5th: Presenting Noma! An XR Experience
Rhapsodies in the 5th: Presenting Noma! An XR Experience
Nyambura M. Waruingi
Akoia & Company Ltd, Kenya
 
RHAPSODIES IN THE 5TH is a presentation providing a case study on language, culture and heritage practices as a result of the emerging art-based XR experiences created, produced, and disseminated to audiences in Nairobi, Kenya. It gives a local perspective on XR artwork development, production, and distribution. The focus is NOMA! AN XR EXPERIENCE, a location-based experience.
The experience ran from Jan 23rd to Feb 4th, 2020, at the Goethe-Institut in Nairobi, featuring XR artwork produced from experiments with visual arts and VR and AR tools. In directing and curating this experience, I was interested in how these XR experiences would work on smartphones and via web, particularly in Kenya where mobile penetration is highest in East Africa and the internet more widely available because of affordable data packages.
In turn, NOMA! functions as a cultural site for linguistic and technological translations in the creation and production of XR artworks. In producing this experience, I questioned how to make technologies accessible outside of English and in a local manner. This focus on access expands the conversation to include: the use of readily available software and hardware tools, and XR artwork production targeting a growing audience/market of smartphone users, which would translate into revenue via web XR experiences, mobile apps, and locally produced headsets.
In summary, RHAPSODIES IN THE 5TH presents: the emerging XR art experiences in Nairobi, Kenya, giving artists tools to explore different encounters of their work; how to develop access to cultural experiences outside of the designated galleries, museums, and libraries; the function of local languages in expanding technological access; and, emerging knowledge on developing audiences for XR art experiences for web and smartphones in an environment where mobile telephony penetration is rapidly shifting the digital landscape.
