Augmented reality is a very powerful learning tool that transform the classroom like nothing else.  You can bring the world even the universe to your classroom.  My goal is to help teachers harness the power of augmented reality and help them use this powerful tool in their classroom.  I would love to reach at least 1 million kids.

All you have to do is try at least one Augmented Tool with your students and let me know how many students tried the tool.  There are several Augmented Tools you can try.  I have a Symbaloo Board full of tools you can choose from.  It is best to login to your Symbaloo and add this board to your list to view all of the tools.

After you have tried an Augmented tool please fill out this form.  This will help me keep track of how many kids we are reaching with augmented content. You can fill out the form for each time you try an Augmented tool with your students.  If you are using social media you can also share your experience with the Augmented tool by using the hashtag #AR4Kids.

I am working on creating lessons that are enriched with Augmented content.  Keep your eye in our AR Lesson section in the Augmented Reality for Education Google+ Group.  The next lesson I will be posting will be a unit over the book Charlotte’s Web along with a few Augmented STEM lessons.

AugThat is wanting to help reach 1 Million kids through Augmented Reality and will give teachers a sample of Augmented content to help with this cause.  To receive your augmented content please contact lisa@augthat.com and let her know you are helping us reach 1 Million kids please use the code #AR4Kids. She will set you up with an account and the give you access to their augmented triggers.

Blippar also has a Augmented building platform that is easy to use.  You will need to contact Stephen at Blippar and he will set you up with a free account so you can start creating your own AR content.  If you can drag, drop, copy & paste you can create simple Augmented content too.  You can also reach out to me and I would love to help you create AR projects.
