The presentation can be paused, continued, and saved through out the process. Students can also open already saved presentations. Being able to select from multiple background images has great potential. 4D Fairy Tale - An Augmented Reality Adventure 4D Fairy Tale adds a one of a kind storytelling experience to Enchantium's toy chest with the story of The Perilous Pursuit of the Pied Piper. 4D Fairy Tale transforms any tabletop into a magical fairy tale world using the surface and objects around the 4D Fairy Tale target.

The iPad as RTI Intervention Toolkit While waiting for the iPad to arrive in my reading intervention classroom, I’ve had a lot of time to think and plan how I will use the device.

The reading intervention programs I teach do their fair share of drilling and killing (to great success) so I don’t need more of the same. 5 Top Augmented Reality Apps For Education The concept of augmented reality has been in existence for a few years now despite the fact that many users of mobile devices are under the impression that it is a new phenomenon.

Even though Google Glasses have yet to be officially released, there are hundreds of augmented reality apps that you can get for your smartphone which work just as well. These apps can be used in everyday applications and even more so for educational purposes.

Best interactive iPad books of 2011 for kids of all ages - iPhone app recommendations - Lisa Caplan All of these best iPad books for kids use digitization to enhance the reading experience, not divert attention from it.

Worksheets for the digital age: AR interactive print Ever since schools started using copy machines in the 1960s, worksheets have been a perennial classroom favorite, beloved — by teachers anyway — for their convenience and their ability to foster independent work.
