Our Problem Statement:
New graduates from the College of Social Work are overwhelmed when they get into the field because their education lacked enough practical training. Many of them are not prepared for the real life scenarios that await them on a daily basis. As a result they are unable to meet the needs of their clients.
Virtual Home Sim is a VR Oculus and PC simulation with a goal to help social work students gain practical experience to be better prepared for the field. Users will navigate through a family’s home to identify risk and protective factors. They will take pictures, write notes, and receive detailed feedback at the end of the training session.
