Developer's Description


Experience a social work child protection visit in real time. This is the fourth of a series of immersive 360-degree videos that aim to give you the 'best seat in the house' so you can witness first-hand and learn from our research experiences.

In this 'enabler' version you will observe Steve (a Social Worker) who has been working with a family for 5-months successfully raise a difficult issue.

Background research

These series of apps recreate and share in 'real time' scenes from our 15-month Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) funded sensory ethnographic research project (Grant Number: ES/N012453/2) entitled: Organisations, staff support and the dynamics and quality of social work practice: A qualitative longitudinal study of child protection work.

This app flexibly allows you to view the 360-degree immersive videos on your phone with or without VR viewers (such as Google CardBoard). However, to get the most immersive experience we suggest that you view the videos using a VR viewer (these can be cheaply obtained online from eBay, Amazon etc).


In this app, Steve has been working with Yvonne and Louise for 5-months. The purpose of his visit is to check an allegation that Trevor has been seen with Emily in the family home.

Before proceeding, make sure you have accessed and viewed the previous films to understand the context for Steves involvement.

Whilst watching this 18-minute encounter in real time, your task is to consider the following questions.

From your observations, can you:

Describe how Steves preparation and approach to addressing a challenging issue may impact on his ability to sustain a positive long term working relationship with this family?

Explain how Steves skills to encourage honesty and recognise the emotions involved in the visit may impact his ability to sustain a long term effective working relationship with this family?

Describe how interactions, atmospheres and people in the house may have blocked or enabled Steve to either keep or lose focus on the child Emily?

You will be asked to record your answers after the watching the film and consider how these factors could impact your current or future practices. Your learning will benefit immensely from sharing and discussing your findings with others either face-to-face or online.


We would really like to hear how this app has impacted on your learning and current/future social work practice. If you are not a social worker, we would still like to hear what you have learned from the process. Please make sure you leave your comments here in the App Review section or Tweet us at @Akali65.

For educators

If you are an educator looking to use this app as part of your teaching or training approaches, a good learning design is to ask learners to download and view the films before a teaching/training session. Then use the face-to-face contact time to discuss the learners experiences and questions in more detail.

This 360-degree film project was funded by the University of Birmingham, UK, ESRC Impact Acceleration Account.

The original 15-month sensory ethnographic research was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and was carried out as part of a collaborative project of the University of Birmingham, University of Nottingham, University of Auckland, and University of Sheffield.
