Augmented what? AR is quickly becoming an emerging technology according to the 2011 Horizon Report. An augmented reality environment includes elements of the real world and the virtual world at the same time, but is interactive in real time. The interaction between the virtual object and the real world brings to life abstract concepts and seeks to enhance understanding. Sound interesting?  


In this session attendees will better understand AR and it implications on education. Learn how to manipulate AR objects via mobile devices and laptops. Discover how AR applications can enhance textbooks too have the power to engage a reader in ways that have never been possible. Take a field trip to a museum with a group of classmates and never leave the classroom. Come learn how to manipulate the White House and a Dodecahedron in 3D and how to make your own AR objects: text, photos, sound and more. Using AR applications can provide each student with his/her own unique discovery path. Do not miss out on the fun!
