Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

The purpose of this session is to provide teachers in grades four through twelve with new technological ideas that can be incorporated into their curriculum. Through the use of video clips and interactive session resources, participants will gain an understanding of Augmented Reality (AR) and its innovative uses in education. In this session, participants will use the Aurasma, and Elements 4D by DAQRI free applications to experiment with and learn more about Augmented Reality.
After gaining an understanding of AR, participants will be asked to collaborate with peers within their content areas to generate ideas on how AR can be effectively implemented in the classroom. Participants will be encouraged to become members of an online learning community through Edmodo which will allow teachers to collaborate and share their lesson ideas that successfully use AR as well as the challenges they face. Incorporating the framework of Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK), the objective of this session is for participants to create a lesson idea that incorporates Augmented Reality into their existing content.


• [20 mins] Participants will be given an explanation of Augmented Reality (AR) and shown video clips of how teachers are using it in their classrooms. This will be followed by a hands-on activity where participants will use the interactive session materials to gain a deeper understanding of AR.
• [10 mins] - Participants will use Aurasma and Elements 4D on their mobile devices to experiment with Augmented Reality.
• [15 mins] – Participants will collaborate with content peers to generate ideas for AR use in the classroom.
• [10 mins] - Participants will share their initial ideas on how they plan to use AR in their content areas and engage in a question and answer discussion.
• [5 mins] – Wrap up and distribute information about the AR online learning community and enrollment instructions.
