YEAR 7 and 8 students at Monterey Secondary College are using virtual reality technology to complete a creative project.
The school was awarded a Creative Victoria learning partnership grant last year to undertake the project. Students are teaming with VR artists Susannah Langly and Warren Armstrong to design and bring to life virtual worlds.
Monterey Secondary College head of art and technology Rob Oakley said that students are hard at work on the project. “Together we will co-design and create virtual worlds – FutureMe – with the students using 3D scanning software, Tilt Brush drawing, and audio recording and building them in Roblox Studio,” he said.
“The term started with a experimentation session introducing students to the technology and equipment they’ll be working with. That was followed by an ideation session and plan of their ideas of what type of FutureMe it will be.”
