Title : Using Augmented Reality: Superimposing sounds, images and text on the world we see
Type : Workshop (60 minutes)
Category : Keynote speech
Abstract : Augmented Reality (AR) apps add content to what someone actually sees in the real world. Pointing a smartphone or iPad at an everyday object might bring up the printed word for that object on the screen at the same time the user continues to see the actual object. Or, users might hear the pronunciation of the word for the object, see a video related to that object, or have a Google doc appear. Many AR apps also incorporate GPS (Global Positioning System) to bring up information that will appear only when a user is in a specific location. Such capabilities are used by tour companies to guide visitors in the physical world and by gamers and educators to create scavenger hunts for students. AR is not just for the technology giants. Anyone can develop AR apps with free software. Bring your smartphones and iPads to learn how you might consider creating lessons for your students.
