10 Augmented Reality Apps For Kids - AVATARGENERATION

10 Augmented Reality Apps For Kids - AVATARGENERATION | Technology in education | Scoop.it
In the days long past, kids would gather around that lucky boy whose parents could afford a Super Nintendo and patiently wait for their turn. Today, everyone can afford a gaming console. When augmented reality games finally make a grand entry into the consumer market, everyone will simply have to have them. This is the way of the future and boy, it sure looks bright.

These AR apps are meant to accustom kids into using and enjoying augmented reality apps so that they can easily maneuver their way through whatever technological advances wait for them 10 or 20 years in the future.

Defining Makerspaces: Part 1 - Renovated Learning

Defining Makerspaces: Part 1 - Renovated Learning | Technology in education | Scoop.it
Recently, I had the unfortunate experience of dealing with criticism.  I was told (not to my face) by a visitor to our school that our library makerspace is not a “real makerspace”.  This same person stated that our woodshop is a “real makerspace” because it has power tools.  She even suggested that I “do some research” on what makerspaces actually are.

Feeling personally insulted aside, what bothers me most about this statement is the concept that some makerspaces are more valid than others and that a makerspace is solely defined by the tools it contains.  I do agree that our woodshop is a makerspace, even though we don’t call it that. Our woodshop is awesome, and I’m so glad that we have a space where students can learn how to use saws, drills and other tools to build awesome projects as part of their curriculum.  Yes, that is a makerspace.

But is my space any less of a makerspace simply because it doesn’t have power tools?  Because it doesn’t have a 3D printer?  Because my students build with LEGOs, K’nex and cardboard?

I do think the definition of 'makerspace' needs to be very liberal - including the use of digital technologies to create artefacts.

Although this is a relatively trivial example, the idea of a Bingo approach to skills building is an interesting one - at UQ we're using a passport as part of engagement processes with Aboriginal school students visiting the university. For every activity they participate in, there is a unique stamp for their passport. The bingo card idea is similar so that across a semester, students fill up their bingo card with activities that build their skills in a range of domains, or across a range of technologies or tools.

Last week, someone criticized my makerspace as not being a “real” Makerspace because it does’t have power tools and suggested that I research what “real makerspaces” are.  Part one of my response to this criticism was my post last week http://renovatedlearning.com/2015/04/02/defining-makerspaces-part-1/ where I looked for definitions from a variety of research and writing on makerspaces.  Today, I’m looking at what the Twitterverse had to say.

It seems to me that a rigid 'definition' of a such a far reaching concept defeats the purpose of the movement itself. My sewing designs are as representative of the product of a maker space as NASA robots are. Part of the reason classrooms are so in need of maker spaces today is because of the tiny pigeon hole educational curricula have been forced into.

Augmented reality is an enhanced media experience in an environment for a user. There are multiple types of experiences. These computer generated environments let you hear music or sounds, watch videos, move and scale a 3D model, or place you in a scene that can be anywhere.

Using Augmented Reality to Enhance Vocabulary Instruction Part One - The Apptive Learning Lab | Technology in education | Scoop.it
Over the school holidays I have been playing around with an app called Aurasma, in the hope of creating an activity for reading groups to enhance our vocabulary studies. We already do a number of activities with iPads that enhance explicit vocabulary instruction, but this is going to be different. I think this activity is going to blow the kids away, and I’m so looking forward to seeing their faces when they use it for the first time.
