Storytelling with Augmented Reality
In this six-week workshop, participants learn how to use augmented reality to tell powerful stories about local issues that matter to them. Working in teams, they focus on a social challenge in their neighborhood and develop their explorations into an interactive digital experience by applying skills including storyboarding, art thinking, user experience, and the Blippar augmented reality app. Participants develop useful life skills, such as critical thinking, communication of ideas, problem-solving, leadership, and collaboration. The workshop culminates in a final showcase of project prototypes where teams gather feedback from the public about their creative expressions. The workshop is taught by Scott Kildall, an artist and educator working with cutting-edge art and technology.
