#6: 12 augmented reality apps students can use today

#6: 12 augmented reality apps students can use today | Technology! | Scoop.it
Augmented reality–a technology that uses a trigger image to superimpose digital content over a user’s view of the real world–is growing in popularity and accessibility, and it holds a wealth of potential for education.

Often described as “QR codes on steroids,” the technology offers new and exciting ways for students to interact with lessons, said Jeff Peterson, an instructional technologist in the Lamar Consolidated ISD in Texas. Peterson presented a TCEA 2017 session on augmented reality’s application in classrooms.

Augmented reality-based apps infuse more engagement into learning exercises, and students often grasp complex concepts quickly with interactive content, said Peterson, referencing Drew Minock, an advocate for augmented reality in the classroom and outreach manager at augmented reality company Daqri.

12 Knots Every Man Should Master - Gear Patrol #MakerEd

12 Knots Every Man Should Master - Gear Patrol #MakerEd | Technology! | Scoop.it
Knot tying is a skill that requires practice, patience and astute knowledge. Depending on the circumstance, a certain knot can be the difference between a secure boat, a taut tent, a safe climb — and the opposite. With this in mind, we recruited J. J. Jameson, Senior Instructor for the REI Outdoor School Tri-State, to walk us through making 12 different knots and when to use each. Whether you’re a climber, sailor, mountain guide or just an ordinary Joe, knowing how to properly secure or fasten a rope to an object will undoubtedly come in handy.

Makerspace Wishlist Part 1: Electronics | Renovated Learning @DianaLRendina | Technology! | Scoop.it
Makerspaces are hot, and many educators are constantly looking for recommendations on what tools to get for their students.  I’m so excited to see so many teachers and librarians working on grants and proposals to get Makerspaces in their schools.  Instead of constantly writing 140 character posts on what tools I recommend for makerspaces, I thought it would make more sense to put together a series of posts.  These posts are divided into four parts: Electronics (this post), Engineering Tools, Technology/Robotics and DIY/Crafts.

The 10 Best VR Apps for Classrooms Using Merge VR’s New Merge Cube | EdSurge News

The 10 Best VR Apps for Classrooms Using Merge VR’s New Merge Cube | EdSurge News | Technology! | Scoop.it
Recently, the world of virtual reality was shaken up when the popular Merge Cube by Merge VR dropped in price from $15 to just a dollar at many Walmart stores. When using specific apps, these cubes showcase different experiences as you rotate the block around with your hands. If you haven’t held a Merge Cube yet, they're made of a soft rubber material that’s comparable to a stiffer stress ball. (If you want to test out the apps first, you can print out a temporary paper cube.)

Design Thinking Can Work in Any Subject – The Synapse – Medium

Exposure to Rhythm (hearing a beat and moving to a beat) can also help the vestibular system develop, which is responsible for balance and co-ordination. This is to do with the ear, not the brain, but still contributes to development.
