360 Degrees - Stories

360 Degrees - Stories

The organization, 360 degrees, has been collecting the stories of inmates, correctional officers, lawyers, judges, parole officers, parents, victims, and others whose lives have been affected by the criminal justice system. Each story is focused around a specific case and is told from the perspectives of the people involved. As you listen to the stories, you can explore each speaker's personal space by navigating 360 degrees-up, down, and around-prison cells, offices, judges' chambers, and living rooms. There is also supportive material under Resources, including how the site can be used in curriculum.

This particular site looks like it may have been built originally using Prezi, or a similar presentation building site. While I did enjoy taking the quizzes, one did not work, and another gave a result that was inconclusive and used poor grammar.  Overall, it was interesting, but I would not use this as a tool for class.
