In UniVirtual Academy we leverage the power of storytelling , game-based learning and immersive technologies to boost engagement, unlock creativity and increase retention.

In this introductory class, students will work in groups to create stories, learning games and quests with role-play, explaining subjects in their own way, and publish their creations in VR. Students will develop narratives that include key concepts of effective storytelling including the 4 Ps and 5 Ws. They will learn about parts of the story, presenting both a problem or obstacle and a solution or cause and effect.

Students will simulate real or imaginary circumstances, present projects to peers, and reflect on lessons learned.
