There truly was something there for everyone, and so many sessions that it literally took hours to choose a single day's worth of sessions. Though my intended focus was Computer Science, I found myself drawn in by some of the other offerings. Below are some of the amazing things I learned about the world of AR, VR, MR, and AI. Augmented Reality (AR): a technology that superimposes a computer-generated image on a user's view of the real world, thus providing a composite view. JigSpace - Explore and learn about objects in 3D. iOS only at this time. AirMeasure - An AR measuring toolkit. Seeing AI: Narrates the world.
Create Your Own Google Expeditions To coincide with the BETT Show Google announced a new beta program that will enable schools to create their own Google Expeditions. The latest iteration of the Google Expeditions Pioneer Program will provide schools with all of the equipment required to capture 360 images and to create their own immersive Google Expeditions. The announcement didn't say this, but I will guess that the Google Expeditions Pioneer Program will provide some type of professional development or training. The application to become a part of the new Google Expeditions Pioneer Program is now open. Click here to apply.
