Can an AR and VR Pilot Program From Google Prepare Kids for Future Careers? | EdSurge News

Can an AR and VR Pilot Program From Google Prepare Kids for Future Careers? | EdSurge News | Transforming Schools | Scoop.it

"Virtual reality has been the driving force behind Google’s Expeditions app since it launched three years ago. And recently it’s added another layer of “reality” to the virtual field trip tool—AR, or augmented reality to be precise, which take the form of features such as narration, annotations, and a new “solo mode,” going on virtual trips without a guide.

This past school year Google says over one million students have used the AR tools as part of the company’s Expeditions Pioneer Program. In New York City, 99 different schools experimented with the program for the first time, giving students an up-close look at everything from famous world landmarks to the human body."

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, March 29, 7:54 AM

En el mundo de la educación, el diseño de los espacios condicionan fuertemente el proceso de aprendizaje de los estudiantes. Por ello las tendencias actuales es ir a espacios mucho más flexibles, sin paredes, con diversidad de ambientes que estimulen el aprendizaje activo y que permitan aprender directamente del contacto con la naturaleza.

10 Apps Teens are Using that Parents Need to Know - Appsolutely April

10 Apps Teens are Using that Parents Need to Know - Appsolutely April | Transforming Schools | Scoop.it
Not all social apps are bad. Most of the apps our kids use are truly an extension of your child’s “real world” social life. For the most part, our kids talk to people they only talk to in “real life.” With the influence of technology in our kids social lives, we can’t panic or over think every single thing, but we do need to empower each other and be aware of what our kids are doing when they are online and engaged in these apps. We teach our children how to swim so they don’t drown and the same is true for online social behaviors. We have to talk to our kids and teach them how to navigate through this online world. I believe strongly in not blocking everything, but in my opinion, there are certain apps that are just off-limits and I will share those with you in this post. The problem in most cases is that parents just don’t know how bad some of these apps can really be. The truth is told so perfectly by Kevin Honeycutt when he says, “Our kids are growing up on a digital playground and no one is on recess duty.” So true.
