12:10 p.m. to 12:50 p.m. - XRLibraries - A Way Out of No Way: The Marinship Project of Marin City: 1942-1945
A Way out of No Way makes a community's “lost stories” come alive in a personal way. XR learning allows students to experience studies in an immersive environment where research has proven higher retention rates for learning. The tools for creating XR are available for librarians to create immersive experiences. A Way Out Of No Way provided XR Core Craft skills in a culturally relevant project examining diversity and equity. Students created multi-media experiences telling the stories of Marin City’ African-American workers in the Marin Shipyards during WWII.
