Mentira

Mentira | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

A good example on how we can use an AR platform (ARIS in this case) to create an AR game for our language classroom. Mentira deals with a murder mystery in an Alburquerque neighbourhood where students try to solve the mystery by moving around an area and interviewing people who appear on the screen as they move close to "triggers" that launch animations and clips on the mobile devices' screens. This is not science fiction, it is just imagination and creativity together with a good ICT tool!

Simon Staffans: "Making a mythology as rich as that of GoT might seem excessive, but look at the possibilities it generates for entry points, character interaction, fan art and fan fiction and so on!"

But technology is only as good as the system it’s applied to. Much like a fresh coat of paint will not improve the fuel efficiency of a ’69 Mustang, the application of technology to a broken system masks deeper problems with short-term gains.
