The Wild and Amazing World of Augmented Reality

The Wild and Amazing World of Augmented Reality | English Language Teaching | Scoop.it
While AR isn’t difficult or expensive to use (especially when compared to 3D Printing or Maker Spaces), it does require forethought and planning. You’ll need a smartphone or tablet with a back facing camera, an augmented reality app (many free), a trigger image (you create yourself, probably for free), and an Internet connection. Then, scan the trigger image with a mobile device app and see what happens!

Some nice ideas.

Rosemary Tyrrell, Ed.D.'s curator insight, March 20, 10:34 AM
Some interesting applications for K-12, but there are some that can also be adapted for higher ed. 
 
Susan's curator insight, March 28, 3:59 AM
Although AR isn't one of my favorite uses of technology in the classroom, I do think that it can be educational if used on occasion or as a one-off activity. Kids will certainly be amazed at what they see and you can build on that initial engagement to create real authentic tasks.

Looks like a great way to put the VR headset to use. You can also use it just with your normal screen. You'll need to download Steam first though. Enjoy.
