The purpose of this session will be to display how AR can be a useful tool in the classroom. We will be displaying a custom app that will use a smart phone and a merge cube. The merge cube is a low cost tool that can be used with existing technologies to enhance a students learning. We will also briefly explain the tools that went into creating the app for the merge cube. These tools are Unity3d and Vuforia. Unity3d is a free game design engine and Vuforia is a free tool designed for object tracking within Unity3d. As a result we hope participants will be able to think differently about their lessons and how best AR can be included in them. We also hope participants will notice how easy it was to design and build an app that integrates well with their lesson plan.
