We know educators are strapped for time. That’s why we wanted to share some tools and research we’ve co-produced, along with a select group of resources we think could be useful for those teaching classes in media, art, futurism, and social change. We hope you’ll find these helpful now and in years to come!

Making a New Reality Toolkit

Created by Jessica Clark and Kamal Sinclair, this toolkit provides ample curated resources for making emerging media (VR, AR, social media, etc.) more diverse, equitable, and inclusive. At Georgia State University, Elizabeth Strickler created an entire class based on this toolkit, and the project has also been featured in research, classes and lectures at universities including USC, Stanford, and Barnard. Learn more about the toolkit and the research here.
