We’re hap­py to announce that the stu­dio was award­ed a IES/SBIR Phase I grant to pro­ceed to cre­ate a vir­tu­al real­i­ty con­tent cre­ation tool called His­to­ry Mak­er. The goal is to allow mid­dle school stu­dents cre­ate dig­i­tal movies and present them in vir­tu­al real­i­ty to teach­ers and class­mates. Accord­ing to the IES announce­ment, these projects are designed to sup­port stu­dent learn­ing, teacher prac­tice, or school admin­is­tra­tion in edu­ca­tion or spe­cial education.”

Once com­plete, the pro­to­type will be test­ed in mid­dle school class­rooms to see if it has the pos­si­bil­i­ty of improv­ing learn­ing out­comes” in a school environment.
