Safe For Kids. Twitter. Math. 6 Platforms to Create Augmented Reality. When most people first try augmented reality(AR) in education, they start with applications that have the AR content already built into the app. Apps like AR Flashcards, PBS Kids CyberChase Shape Quest, and Crayola Color Alive have this, and are a great way to get your feet wet. As educators, we know the power of creation. Hopefully one of the following 6 platforms will help you and your students dive in to creating your own augmented reality!

The first creation platform is from our friends at DAQRI! 4D Studio will allow users to create augmented reality campaigns with no prior coding knowledge, just basic computer skills. Educators will be able to apply for a free education 4D Studio account. The features are currently very similar for the free and paid versions. . * DAQRI 4D Studio is currently being updated and is* unavailable to new users.

For those who don’t know Educon is an annual education Conference held at the Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia each year on the week before the Super Bowl. It is a conference of discussion as opposed to a conference of presentation. Each of the sessions is a facilitated discussion that involves the participants. It was in one such session that #Edchat received what I thought was an unwarranted criticism from one of the participants in the session.

For those who may be new to social media scheduled chats take place on Twitter on various topics in education throughout the week. The Edchat criticism came in a discussion that I attended on The Privileged Voices in Education; facilitated by two people I greatly admire Jose Vilson, and Audrey Watters. Like this: Like Loading...
