Who is Sharni?
Sharni Marcus, a 12th-grade student from San Diego Jewish Academy (SDJA), started her adventure in the world of immersive creation with her use of Zoe Immersive and landed a spot in her college of choice! In this student spotlight, we delve into Sharni's journey as an immersive creator and learn more about her passion and skills in the field.
Sharni: I have been working with Zoe for several months now and I have created an entire immersive experience as well as multiple video tutorials showcasing the different features of the software. Working with Zoe has been a great learning experience for me, as I have learned how to turn abstract ideas into complete projects and how to find creative solutions to complex problems.
Sharni: I am most passionate about creating enjoyable content for others to experience. In the future, I hope to use Zoe to create interactive experiences for younger students, helping them learn and create in this new virtual space.
Sharni: Working with Zoe has not only allowed me to develop my creator skills, but also to learn valuable work-life skills such as planning and meeting deadlines. The skills I have learned will be able to support me in many aspects of my life and provide me with a glimpse of what the workplace is like.
Her Project Made with Zoe
Immersive learning is a way to bring the world to students who may not have other avenues to see it. These technologies expose them to what's possible for expressing themselves, learning about themselves, and choosing a college or career pathway that works for them and their caregivers.
