The SDG Experience - Student Immersion in SDG Solutions Through Virtual Field Trips
Rimjhim Aggarwal of Arizona State University in the U.S. will use a digital learning platform and teaching network to teach young people how to create 360-degree spherical imagery of field sites that function as virtual field trips to share their experiences about specific UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and better engage and teach others. These virtual field trips can be distributed on the internet, giving a large number of viewers the sense of actually being in the field, and are thus valuable teaching tools. However, they require specialized skills and equipment to create them. They will teach young people how to make them by holding a workshop to train 20 honors and undergraduate university students to create three new virtual field trips for local SDGs. These will then be presented to other students as part of a university course via a digital learning platform to evaluate their impact.
