Augmented Reality is a cutting edge technology used in industry to bring objects and information into our world.

By using the camera on our smart device with a Merge Cube, we look at how easy it is to use in the classroom in this 2 part series. These two webinars will be looking at Augmented Reality and how we can use it within the classroom to provide immersive and interactive learning experiences. The Merge Cube is easy to grasp which makes getting it into the classroom hassle free.

The first webinar will be introducing Augmented Reality, the second webinar will be using Merge Cube and AR to explore possibilities. We will also look at how these activities relate to progress outcomes and the Technology learning area. Note: these sessions will be interactive with participants being guided to use the Merge Cube themselves throughout the sessions. No prior experience is required, Merge Cubes are provided in printout form for you.
