Engage and Interact With Augmented Reality

This workshop is designed to learn about new and exciting Augmented Reality apps and how to use these apps to bring your classroom to life by engaging and building interaction with your students. You will learn what Augmented Reality (AR) is and how to build your own. The magic is in the target image and how it is brought to life with an extra layer through an AR App. Imagine holding your device over a poster on your classroom wall as if you were going to take a picture and the poster instantly comes to life by playing a video or sharing additional information. Oh, ho, ho, it's magic you know! Your students will never believe it's not so!

To take part in this workshop you will need a smart mobile device and colored pencils. Please download the Aurasma and colAR apps to your device before the workshop. These apps only work on iPad, iPod, iPhone, or Android tablet. The Kindle Fire will NOT run these apps unless it's set to download Android Apps.
