Mixiply was born out of an award winning Mixed-Reality Hackathon project by Theta software architect, Jim Taylor and Newlands Intermediate teacher, Marianne Malmstrom. They were curious how schools and industry could collaborate to build a platform that inspired people, of all ages, to create their own AR/VR games and content. The project became a reality when developers, teachers and students teamed up to build this winning idea. Mixiply connects creators, enables content collaboration, and facilitates sharing of ideas.
In this workshop you will participate in teams to create a prototype for an AR/VR game, in real time, using Mixiply. You will work alongside our team of developers, artists, coders, animators and 3D model makers. All skill levels welcomed and supported.
What would inspire students to come to school voluntarily at 7 a.m. on a Saturday morning? Serious Play! In this unique workshop, attendees meet and collaborate with the Newlands Intermediate MiniDevs. Participants were enchanted creating 3D classrooms shaped like mushrooms and constructing variations of New Zealand’s iconic Kiwi bird. All of this unfolds in real time and was made possible with Mixiply, a platform created through an extraordinary collaboration between Newlands Intermediate students and the visionary developers of Theta Innovation Lab. It was a singularly delightful workshop for all involved. The MiniDevs had so much fun they are returning to Serious Play in 2022 to lead an extended workshop on creating AR/VR games.
This course will be virtual (online).
