Online vs In-Person Facilitation
VRtality can be offered online, in person or using a hybrid approach which may include some sessions face-to-face, some sessions online, and even some sessions with co-designers both online and face-to-face.
The overall structure of the co-design sessions will remain the same in both face-to-face and virtual settings. However, you will need to anticipate some differences in facilitation based on session format.
The information below will help you get started.
Feedback and reflection
Co-designers will use large sticky chart paper and post-its to write down their ideas.
Co-designers will write down their ideas using Miro Boards.
VR Build Testing Using Sidequest
Adult co-designers will prepare teen co-designer headsets, outside of one of the co-design sessions) by installing SideQuest software on those headsets
Portions of two virtual co-design sessions will include setting up and testing Sidequest on teen co-designer headsets.
As less time is needed to set up Sidequest in the face-to-face setting, agendas 10, 11, and 12 allow for more time to explore VR experiences.
Agendas 10 and 11 include setting up Sidequest on co-designer headsets, fewer VR experiences will be explored during those sessions.
There are so many places we can go from here. We plan to continue to use things like CoSpaces and other apps to work with teens using codesign principles.”
