Nebula is an immersive, story-based system that helps reinforce skills of emotional intelligence, critical for both youth in classrooms and beyond. It was designed by a team of UW students and the video above is a representation by actors of how it could be used in practice.
By presenting students with hard choices that have no obvious answer, they are forced to weigh the pros and cons of each situation, spurring active empathy and engagement and allowing teachers to actively tailor discussion and classes to the choices the students make.
