Forget everything you think you know about interFIRE VR. These three
documents-User's Guide, Instructor's Manual, and Student Handbook-get
specific on how to use this incredible resource.
There are three flavors:
(to save, right mouse button click on the link, and choose "Save Target As")
- User's Guide: The first, and probably only, document that the vast majority of interFIRE VR users will need. Covers software installation, how to get started with each section, how to work with the Tutorial, how to navigate the Resource File, three "Learning Pathways' that de-mystify how the Scenario works, how to read your Virtual Prosecutor feedback, and some innovative ways to use interFIRE VR.
- Instructor's Manual: The mother lode of information on interFIRE VR for instructors. Includes how to quickly become an expert in interFIRE VR, pre-made lesson plans and class practical exercises (including correlations to NFA curriculum and NFPA 921), three "Learning Pathways" for your students, the "Solution Path" of how to crack the case in the Scenario, and details of how to work with students to interpret their Virtual Prosecutor feedback.
- Student Handbook: A "lite" version of the User's Guide for students in a class using interFIRE VR. Focuses on tools for the most novice user, including a step-by-step way to attack the Scenario investigation, and a description of class exercises you may be asked to participate in.
These three documents contain all the information you need to get started,
keep going, and finish up.
