Moving Ahead in Augmented Reality in Education ....

Quiver is working really hard to develop some amazing augmented educational content.  They are needing your input as they make plans for the future.  What you may not know is the more content you load into one app it starts to slow down the app.  They are wanting to know if you would like the educational content broken up into more than one Quiver Education app that focuses on a certain subject.  For example science, language arts, social studies and etc..





Take a moment and let Quiver know your thoughts by filling out this form. -

Triggers of the Week:

Things that GO:

I would have a center with different augmented coloring pages.  I would have students organize the pages but things that go with a motor verses things that don't have a motor.  For self-check students could scan the pages and see if they really move because they have a motor.  These two pages are from Quiver's Education. ( http://quivervision.com/education)

To take the "Things that Go" further you could have students build their own transportation via LEGOs, recycled materials, and etc..


To learn more about augmented reality in education join us every Thur. at 8pm central for the Twitter chat #AR4Learning.  This week's topic is using augmented reality with younger learners and next week's topic will be focusing on STEM/STEAM.

#NOTatISTE16 Part 3 ....

ISTE (International Society in Education) is a mega educational technology conference.  Since attending such conference cost a pretty penny I've only had a few chances to attend the conference in person.  For the majority part of the time I've used social media to learn from a distant and gather resources. Just like the big blue bear I get a chance to peer into the conference. This is my 2nd time attending the conference via the #NOTatISTE group.  I really love the connections I've made via the group.  Thank you so much for organizing the group and having such fun activities for us who are not at ISTE to participate in.

Below are some resources I've gathered via or during the ISTE conference and can be used in a MakerSpace, STEM and STEAM classes.  The common theme during the conference was to give students choices.  I think with the resources I've gathered will defiantly give students choices.

In my opinion coding and robotics shouldn't be separate from computer science and computer science shouldn't be separate from STEM/STEAM/MakerED.  They all go hand-in-had just like reading, math, social studies, and science.

Computer Science Material:


Robotics:


With robotics students need to go past driving them and making marks for them to follow.  Students need to learn to program them.

#NOTatISTE16 Part 2 ....


My #NOTatISTE16 didn't go to plan.  My daughter and I had planned for this fun photowalk and a storm decided to brew.  On our 2nd attempt for a #NOTatISTE16 photowalk the sun was so bright that we had to stand on the side of the mini statue of Liberty. Over all the photowalk turned out for the best.  We had a blast and giggled a lot.  I even got a chance to play with a new picture in picture app on my phone.

I presented a second #NOTatISTE16 GHO session on the topic of Using Pre-Made Augmented Triggers.  Now when I say "Pre-Made" I am meaning items that you did not make, but someone else has.  It could be from another teacher or an AR company.  There are now several AR companies out there that are making some pretty cool augmented content.  In my session I just mentioned a few.  If you need more information about a company or ways to use AR with your students or subject matter just shout.  I am only a message away.

#NOTatISTE16 Part 1 ....


I wasn't able to attend ISTE this year even though it was really close but yet too far away, so I did the next best thing and attended and presented via #NOTatISTE16.  I really love the #NOTEatISTE community.  It is a chance to connect, learn, and share with others from around the world without leaving my small midwest town.  My favorite part of participating in the #NOTatISTE community is making my badge.  This year I didn't make a ribbon just because the ribbons provided fit me to a tee.  It was nice to see that someone gets me and I am among my tribe!

I presented today via the #NOTat ISTE Ignite session on Augmented Interactive Student Notebooks.  It was a quick session in hopes that I light a flame in someone and to also show the endless possibles of using augmented reality with student notebooks.  I will present on Tues. again on the topic of Using Augmented Pre-Made Triggers.  Feel free to join me!

I did create the slides for my session from Buncee.  I really love their fun creative content.  I am also collecting some resources from the ISTE sessions being shared out.  Feel free to use any of the resources I share.
