The day is fast arriving when it will be possible to "walk a mile in someone else's shoes". The technology is here. What's missing is the vehicle... the engaging stories that lend meaning and purpose to the use of technology. Read about the Neurodiverse City a project to improve social outcomes for the disabled. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/virtual-reality-education-promoting-empathy-others-leventhal?trk=prof-post

Participate in a project to improve life for people with disabilities. Nearly all cultures treat the disabled as second-class citizens.The Americans With Disabilities Act helped equalize the workplace environment but was not designed as an agent of cultural change. How would your life differ if you or a family member were disabled? More to the point, how could a disabled person's life be improved simply because others appreciated their challenges?

Video is far more than an entertainment medium.  It is valuable for a variety of educational purposes ranging from record keeping to illustrating complex ideas that are difficult to communicate. One area worthy of investigation is into how video can be used to motivate and engage autistic students in activities that promote language, volition and self-awareness.
