Uses of Augmented Reality in the Classroom

As many of you already know I am a bug proponent of augmented reality. I have written quite a bit about it here on this blog. Recently, as I have been discussing with many of you about having the students bring their own devices to school. This influx of technology in the classroom at no cost to the district could be a real help to developing augmented reality lessons. With that in mind I found a great video that shows many different things educators can do with Augmented reality.  Watch the video below and I am sure you will get some great ideas.

Motivating Students

As every good teachers knows the key to student success is keeping them motivated.  During the first week of school I usually talk to my students about motivation and what they can accomplish if they just keep trying.  This year I found a great little video clip called “No Arms, No Legs, No Worries” .  This is a great motivational 4 minute clip that will allow you to talk about motivation with your students.  This will open up discussion about perspective, persistence and effort and how they can lead to success.  I don’t know how anyone can watch this view and not be inspired and motivated.

Augmented Reality with Bing Maps The Wave of the Future?

Saw this video and the ideas for augmented reality uses for kids in the classroom and thousands of ideas exploded in my head about the potential uses in education.  This is a fascinating video that will get you thinking about the use of this technology in the classroom.  Must see if you are looking at augmented reality games for students to learn from.
