Keys to Unlocking the Universe via Augmented Reality ....

Augmented reality captures the attention of kids of all ages even the inner kid in adults.  The 1st time I saw AR being used was at a conference and the speaker just mentioned how he used it to bring an art show to life.  From that moment I was hooked and had to learn more.  I've been sharing augmented reality content for the past six years.  I started this journey presenting the topic at conferences, workshops, edcamps, and webinars.  I love showing educators, parents, and kids ways to use augmented reality in education. Because I love to share I launched the Google+ Group "Augmented Reality for Education". My plan for the group is to share ways others use augmented reality in their classroom and with their students.  It is also a place to get help and ask questions.  To keep the conversation going I host a weekly Twitter Chat #AR4Learning. Once a month #AR4Learning is also Twitter Chat + a Google Hangout.  Since augmented reality can be used with all curriculum I have broken up the #AR4Learning Twitter chat into topics such as AR with Math, AR with Science, AR with Social Studies, AR with Reading, AR with Writing, etc..

My love of sharing has lead me to write a book "Keys to Unlocking the Universe via Augmented Reality". It has taken me about a year to put the book all together.  It is full of ideas on how to use all different types of augmented content in education, from augmented coloring pages to flashcards, and augmented 360 environments.  To celebrate the launch of my book I will be giving away a digital copy on May 26th during #AR4Learning Twitter Chat + Google Hangout.  I may even give away a digital copy during the May 19th #AR4Learning Twitter Chat.  To enter the give-a-way you will need to fill out the form below. Then join us on May 19th and 26th at 8pm central time for #AR4Learning either on Twitter, in the GHO, or both.
