Forma innovadora de cómo combinar dos recursos digitales para implementar a través del juego con realidad aumentada, el sistema eLearning complementado con reactivos, mismos que se podrían adecuar para el desarrollo de contenidos en el área de las ciencias sociales por ejemplo. Esto requiere de equipos multidisciplinarios y equipos de producción de materiales didácticos interactivos, tal vez ya contemplados por las empresas dedicadas a la producción de software educativo en línea.

Great for tourism development

Nathan Chasse's curator insight, April 1, 7:48 AM

This series of pictures shows the extremely rapid growth of Dubai. An extremely wealthy city, the oil richness of Dubai has allowed for it to grow at an unprecedented rate from a desert to a sprawling metropolis. Such an impressive city springing up in a desolate desert speaks to how much resources can dictate where and how city growth occurs.

Jessica Rieman's curator insight, April 14, 2:13 PM

 Dubai has drastically changed throughtout it's time before the globalization boom and was one of the only cities to be impacted positively by globalization. As you can see from the depiction that Dubai in 1991 was a deserted place and then in 2005 it transformed into becoming somewhat of a city. In 2012 this city drastically transformed in order to help the globalization process and the whole city in general was trasformed into a mega city.
