Keeping Tabs 2.0
In a partnership with students and faculty at Notre Dame College in South Euclid, Ohio and the Carnegie Mellon University Entertainment Technology Center, our Middle School students have completed the first phase of the Keeping Tabs 2.0 project to develop a virtual reality tour of the Gary and Nancy Tuckfelt Keeping Tabs: A Holocaust Sculpture.
In an Exploratory course, students created an online archive of Keeping Tabs materials and resources, conducted interviews with individuals involved in the Sculpture (listen here) together with media experts from Steeltown Entertainment Project, and constructed a VR tour using IRLLabs SocialVR platform that you can download on your Android Phone (version 8.1+ required).
During the 2018-2019 school year, the Keeping Tabs 2.0 team will work to transfer the VR tour to the Google Tour Creator platform and be challenged to find new technological outlets to share their powerful story with the Pittsburgh community and the world.
