How to Get Augmented Reality into the Classroom

How to Get Augmented Reality into the Classroom | Education & Learning Technologies | Scoop.it

One of the most common misconceptions about Augmented Reality is that it belongs in the future, when in fact it is all around us – right here, right now. It is also incredibly user-friendly whilst utilising cutting edge technology, making it ideal for incorporating into learning environments.

Great Prezi on making great Prezis 

Dave Wood's curator insight, April 18, 2014 3:41 PM

Some really useful tips about structuring information and the impactful use of visuals.  I haven't been a huge fan of Prezi because they can be just too "busy" and disorientating when they incorporate too much spin as they move from image to image. These tips give good advice about how to keep it simple for best effect.

I've used Prezi as a way of presenting the notes from a visual group coaching session back to the participants.
