B11 – Waterloo: Using Virtual Reality to Create Tours of Sacred Spaces
Presenters: John Schneider, Carlos Roque,Whitney McKinley, Michael Leonard
Description: This workshop is a follow up to an initial workshop which took place last year. This workshop will present the completed “A Child’s Virtual Tour of Christ the King Cathedral in Hamilton,” (created by students for students) and describe some of the broader possibilities of VR Tours including – but not limited to – how this tool works, what hardware/software is required and how such an activity can be linked to World Religions Courses and their tours of Sacred Sites in their communities. Positive implications for the School – Parish relationship will be explained in the course of this presentation.
