Event Details

Educators around the nation are realizing the awesome potential for augmented reality (AR) in education. In contrast to virtual reality, augmented reality is a rapidly developing technology that adds graphics, sounds, and real-time feedback to the natural world. How much does it cost? If you have access to any iOS or Android device, most AR apps are actually FREE!

How can AR be utilized in education? That is what you will discover in this interactive and high energy workshop. We will experiment with AR apps such as SkyView, Spacecraft 3D, AR Flashcards & Space, Chromville, ColAR Mix, Daqri, Anatomy 4D, Enchantium Musical Strings, Elements 4D, and Aurasma. This workshop will also provide educators with the opportunity to create their own personalized AR experiences using the powerful Aurasma app.

Goals:
- Recognize how augmented reality can be leveraged to engage students and enhance learning.
- Develop personalized augmented reality experiences.

Audience:
K-12 Educators
Although iPads will be available, participants are encouraged to bring their own iOS or Android devices with many of the above mentioned apps installed. (Advised but not necessary to engage in this awesome session!)
