This talk will focus on Dr Yamada-Rice’s study of children and VR covering four funded research projects from 2015. The first was an industry project that considered twenty 8–12-years-olds use of Virtual Reality (VR) for entertainment. The second took place as part of the wider MakEY study and looked at children’s making for and with VR. Thirdly, a UK-Japan network on location-based VR experiences and, finally, a co-designed location-based VR experience that was showcased at the V&A museum of childhood called ‘The Village’. This whistle-stop tour of the four projects will include showcasing some of the analysis that used novel multimodal methods that included stop-motion animation and graphic narratives to develop multimodal means for analysis within the context of VR.
