Seeing Double: Stereographic Image Making PBL Project
With the proliferation of 3D Movies and Virtual Reality devices, an understanding of the mechanics of stereography is essential for those who would create content for immersive technology. This is a series of lessons that will prepare students for content creation in the Virtual Reality industry by teaching the mechanics of stereography and creation of a "Google Cardboard" viewing device.
The first lesson (Introduction to Stereography) introduces stereographic image construction through analysis of existing work and through stereographic drawing exercises.
The second lesson (Creating Stereoscopic Images) guides students through the creation of stereoscopic image pairs using Adobe Photoshop techniques. Student creativity and personal expression is encouraged with the use of design briefs. Technical construction techniques for creating stereo pairs are taught using a tutorial and a project break-down.
For the third lesson (Google Cardboard: Construct a Stereo Viewing Device), students will customize and construct their own Google Cardboard viewer.
In the fourth lesson (Stereoscopic Slideshow: A Culminating Lesson) students will create a stereoscopic slideshow and YouTube video for viewing with a Google Cardboard or other stereoscopic viewer. Students will share their work in a gallery walk. They will also give and receive constructive criticism using the "Feedback Sandwich" technique.
