Transcend the Classroom with Virtual Place-Based Learning

Transcend the Classroom with Virtual Place-Based Learning | Augmented Reality and Teaching | Scoop.it
Simulation-based learning allows us to play in a highly immersive environment that reflects aspects of the real world. In virtual simulations, we can explore and create with much lower stakes than we would encounter in the real world. Questions of “What if?” flourish in a virtual simulation as we create and experience new possibilities with increasing realism. With smartphones making access to virtual reality easier and easier, virtual simulations can now become part of place-based learning in the classroom.

Highly acclaimed simulation and tutorial games such as SimCity and Math Blaster have been continuously employed in elementary schools across the country, but the most common software used in education today is the web, word processors and spreadsheets.

Evernote’s New App Is More Than an Update—It’s a Reboot

Evernote’s New App Is More Than an Update—It’s a Reboot | Augmented Reality and Teaching | Scoop.it

EVERNOTE ROLLED OUT an update to its iOS app today. Ordinarily, the company makes its big changes alongside new versions of iOS, or to make a splash with a new iPhone. (Turns out a great way to get new users is to be in Apple’s “works with our latest stuff” section of the App Store.) This time, there’s no magic to the day. It’s just Tuesday.

But you’d be wrong to think this isn’t a hugely important upgrade to Evernote. In fact, this random Tuesday is one of the most significant moments in the nine-year history of the company. Version 8.0 brings with it an entirely new design, a bunch of refinements to what had become a hopelessly overwrought service, and a renewed focus on what Evernote is actually for. It’s the fastest, cleanest app the company has ever released. It’s the culmination of more than a year of overdue under-the-hood work to make Evernote reliable, consistent, and future-proof. And it represents the beginning of a new era for the company, in which it will try to make the transition from a note-taking app to being the place you do your best thinking. And thanks to the latest in machine learning and artificial intelligence, a place that does some of the thinking for you.

Toontastic 3D Brand New App for Student Storytelling - Class Tech Tips

Toontastic 3D Brand New App for Student Storytelling - Class Tech Tips | Augmented Reality and Teaching | Scoop.it
Starting today! You can now access Toontastic 3D, a redesigned storytelling app for students that lets users draw, animate, and narrate their own 3D cartoons. If you’re a regular reader of ClassTechTips.com you know how much I love open-ended creation tools. As a one-to-one iPad teacher, I used the original version of Toontastic with my students so I’m so excited about today’s new release!

Available for both Android and iOS devices, Toontastic 3D gives students the power to easily create their own cartoon. Using Toontastic 3D is easy, students can create their own characters and move then around the screen. As they tell their story, students record their voice and create an animated movie. With Toontastic 3D students can create their own cartoon on any topic.

App provides students with customizable story templates, settings, and characters. Students can also create stories, settings, and characters of their own. Students can record narration while moving characters around their scene settings.  No account needed.

The Best Free Resources for Getting Started With 3D Printing - Life Hacker

The Best Free Resources for Getting Started With 3D Printing - Life Hacker | Augmented Reality and Teaching | Scoop.it
Despite many people understanding the concept of 3D printing, few know the 3D design and printing process well enough to try it out for themselves and take the step towards creating physical objects from scratch–be it a personal design or a replacement part for an appliance. But there are plenty of free resources for experimenting with before taking the deep dive.

To help get you started, here’s a breakdown of some of the most fundamental resources to consider when starting out with 3D printing–no experience or spending required. By using the tools outlined here once or twice, you will have a better understanding of 3D printing terminology, how 3D designs are created, and where to get your 3D prints made.
