Virtual_Decisions is a one-of-a-kind, innovative, exciting VR in Education program that is helping to support thousands of
young people who are at risk of criminal exploitation.
An multi-award winning VR in Education experience that deals with challenging situations. The VR experience places the participants in realistic scenarios where they face dilemmas and must make their own choices which result in various outcomes. Our trailblazing experience explores allows us to facilitate learning via the medium of interactive-VR and drama. Anonymous records of decisions made by the participants will be available in the follow-on workshops, to help the users learn from the shared experience.n
Target group research was carried out with 1200 young people in schools and youth clubs via workshops, creative consultation and questionnaire. This research enabled us to understand what young people felt a VR experience for social good should be about. The majority believed that risk taking behaviour was a good umbrella subject that could have many offshoots looking at different issues affecting young people.
The findings were then used by Dr Stephanie Burnett Heyes of The University of Birmingham’s School of Psychiatry. Dr Burnett Heyes worked with scriptwriters Phil Hyde and Claire Downes to create a relevant and impactful script.
