How to integrate Augmented Reality successfully in your

Are you wondering what Augmented Reality is all about? “Augmented Reality (AR)allows
teachers and students to extend the physical world with a virtual overlay.
Whether you have iPad, Android, or a smartphone, scanning a trigger in the
physical world with an AR app allows a new layer of information to appear. This
information could be a link to a web site, a video, an audio recording, or even
a 3D model..” Quoted from EdTechTeacher: http://goo.gl/nP1Wi3.  We invite you to
join this 15 – 30 minute minute webinar to find out how to use this technology
in your classroom.
