Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

This will be a fast-paced, light hearted session guaranteed to tickle your geeky side while delighting the teacher in you who wants to motivate and inspire your students. The session will highlight some enthralling augmented reality resources that you can master in minutes. Learn about powerful tools, and see innovative apps promoting classroom engagement. Learn how to use HP Reveal to combine trigger images and overlay videos to create augmented reality auras, and how they can be used thoughtfully in classrooms. Hear about technologies and innovative ideas that do not yet exist at the time this session was proposed. The session will consist of demonstrations and some short audience activities. Evidence of successful implementation will be presented in the form of research-based documentation of learning outcomes. The term “Electronic Constructivism” was coined by this presenter who will link these technologies to what it is all about: Good Teaching. It will end with a raffle and some high tech door prizes. My goal is for you to leave the session inspired, enlightened, and ready to use AR in your classroom. No experience necessary - just your curiosity, enthusiasm about teaching, and a sense of humor.

Supporting research

My research is grounded in constructivist and experiential learning theory, developed and influenced by John Dewey, Lev Vygotsky, Jean Piaget, and Jerome Bruner. Information about the technology and resources will have been gathered by electronic sources and will include articles, manufacturer’s sites, and blogs. Given the nature of the emerging, and rapidly changing, field of virtual and augmented reality, the majority of the articles and web sites cited will be less than three months old at the time of this presentation.
