Students at Kennesaw State University are taking journalism to another level. A group of them recently reported on the incarceration of a teenager who was given a 40 year prison sentence for a non-lethal shooting. And they presented the story using virtual reality. In this installment of our “Lessons from Leftfield” series, we talk about uses of virtual reality in journalism with Leonard Witt, the executive director of the Center for Sustainable Journalism at Kennesaw State University. We also hear from Ann Ondieki, one of his journalism students.
