Augmented Reality Meets Kagan Structures....My school uses Kagan structures which then the question gets asked "How can I use augmented triggers with Kagan structures?" Augmented triggers are just another tool that teachers can use to introduce a new concept, idea, lesson, deliver content, and etc... It is also a tool that gets kids thinking outside the box. It isn't just another worksheet passed out and we say here solve the problem, or text in a book and we direct them to read it. It is a tool that gives our students and our teachers an experience. Studies have shown when we tie emotion and when we are activity engaged we are learning. Augmented triggers do just that. When you tie augmented reality to learning structures such as Kagan structures the possibilities are endless.
I modified my augmented scavenger hunt "Riddle Me This" and included two Kagan structures to use with it. (Rally Coach and Sage & Scribe) What I would love to do is also augmented the structures themselves to include video or animated examples of how to use the structures at different grade levels. When they have over 250 structures a teacher and or student could get lost or confused. Having an augmented poster or image tied to examples and video demonstrations would be very helpful especially for us visual learners.
When you use educational augmented content with your students please fill out this form. I would like to track how many kids are being reached with educational augmented content.
