Over the past year I have been looking into augmented reality and how I can develop this medium for the classroom. I have discussed this before in my blogs multiple times. (See links below.) At this point I have been lucky enough to convince my district to pilot 32 HTC Touch Pro 2’s in my classroom. These devices will run windows mobile 6.5 and Goknow mobile software. The district is going to pay for the data plans through Verizon. This will allow me to begin to develop different types of augmented reality learning environments for my students. At the present I see that I will use Mscape and Goknow, including their multiple applications that they provide with their service, to begin creating these learning environments. The purpose of this blog is to asked others what have you used to create these type of learning environments? Also what are your experiences using augmented reality in the classroom? Since this is a pilot program that is getting started late in the year I don’t have much time to convince my district of the validity of these types of learning environments. So any help here would be great so that I can prove the worth of these devices and be able to retain them for the upcoming school year.
