Knowledge through experience.
What is Virtual_Decisions?
Virtual_Decisions is an innovative and exciting VR in Education program that is helping to support thousands of young people who are at risk of criminal exploitation.
Virtual Decisions films enable participants to experience multiple dilemmas and illustrate the impacts of choices. Participants can experience the consequences of their decisions through the use of high-end VR headsets, which incorporate haptic feedback and 180˚ social interaction to immerse participants in unique scenarios.
Following the VR experience, expert facilitators then run creative arts workshops that explore the issues raised in more depth. In this empathetic space, users can reflect on their personal journey within the VR and compare it to that of others, making it a user-led – and user shared – experience.
The productions use real-world actors aged 14 – 25 to give authenticity; the scripts are based on extensive research; the outcomes speak for themselves.

Tackling real world issues in real world scenarios, in the safety of an educational experience.

Built on Research
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.
