Create Immersive Learning Experiences with Augmented Reality (without fancy equipment)

My guest today is a teacher-of-the-year recipient and educator of 20 years.  Carolina Carner has been utilizing augmented reality in her classroom for several years in her middle school classroom.  Additionally she's worked with Google for Edu as a product expert in Google Expeditions, AR, VR, and Tour Creator.  She's THE AR/VR person to talk to when it comes to implementation in the classroom.

It was a fun conversation as she walked me through a litany of augmented reality apps, showing me their classroom application.  You hear me experiencing them in real time.

We explore:

  • using AR for math manipulatives like fraction strips
  • how to fill your classroom up with a solar system
  • using AR to study wild animals up close
  • how AR can build community and give students voice
  • exploration of cells up close
  • using AR to HOLD A BEATING HEART IN YOUR HAND!
  • common mistakes teachers make when starting to use AR
  • how to use AR with one device or many
  • strategies for getting more devices in your classroom
