360-videos resemble traditional videography in some of their affordances but are still genuinely different when it comes to innovative storytelling, playful learning elements or strategies for directing the gaze-attention of learners. At our New Media Lab, we are currently developing six innovative 360-videos, following a process of co-design in multidisciplinary teams of teachers, learning experience designers, media designers and researchers. The projects cover a variety of educational topics including remote sensing, dementia, lab security, archaeology, classroom conflict management and a critical meta-media inquiry into VR. All VR-videos have different learning goals, such as promoting problem solving skills, identifying important signals, finding cues in a new environment and experiencing consequences of actions and wrong choices. We will explain our design decisions, incorporating both the media affordances and educational perspective, discuss our successes and failures of the 360-video pilot and elaborate on aspects such as kinaesthetic movements, interactivity, affordances, framing and guidance.
