Have students upload pdf format of senior presentation slide show from computer to iPod. Allow students to break off into groups of 2-3 with one Virtual Reality (VR) headset per group. Students will then enter into the "conference room" of the Virtual Speech app and activate "Analyse" feature to begin presentation. Students must speak allowed their presentation. Student one gives speech while student 2 watches hand gestures and body movement. Once speech is complete, student 1 reads allowed data collected from analyse feature: Eye contact, volume, fluency, and time. Student 1 should repeat speech and analyse again. Students switch places. Student 3 takes a turn if applicable.
Speech is based off of Junior research paper and senior project aligned with research.
