AR 101 LIVE UPDATED!



Welcome to the fourth episode of The Two Guys Show! Last night we were excited to share the power of augmented reality. Augmented reality is is a live, direct or indirect, view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. 
We believe AR is the future of educational technology because it allows students to learning in a way like never before. We are able to bring a hands on approach to objects before was impossible. For example, with the use of augmented reality we can now place the entire solar system on the students desk in 3D space. 

You can also engage students to practice letter recognition with AR Flashcards. Mitchlehan Media is about to release their second augmented reality app called AR Flashcards-Space. Those will be available very soon in the app store.

Students and teachers can create their own augmented reality using Aurasma. Aurasma allows you to create AR in the app on your device, or on a computer using the studio account
Another company who is looking to change education with the use of 4D is Daqri! We believe Daqri has develop the best augmented reality content out there. They create an engaging and educational experience for each user. They have developed Autonomy 4D and recently successfully funded their Kickstarter campaign for Elements 4D. Look for more amazing AR in the future from Daqri. 





We are very excited to have the great Shannon Miller join us on next weeks episode of The Two Guys Show! Don't miss it next Tuesday night at 9PM EST! Click here to RSVP!

  2. I teach 5th in CA (but was raised in The D), and am beginning to use Aurasma in my classroom. In order to see the Auras, do students & parents (and others) need to subscribe to your channel? Is there a work around for that?

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge!
