Join us at Australia eSeries on February 27 for an in depth look at Augmented Reality. Experience the wonder through the eye of Christopher Winter.
What if your students could stand in any room and by looking through their phones camera, be presented with an entirely new virtual world? What if instead of 30 students crowding around one physical object, they could each have an almost tangible replica on their desks to study, even when at home?

Augmented Reality is not a new technology and was in fact in danger of fading out before it really had chance to make an impact. The fact was that holding a piece of paper up to a webcam in order to see a 3D object on a desktop computer is neither engaging nor fun. It was less than intuitive and quite cumbersome.

Fast forward to the present day and thanks to the mobile revolution Augmented Reality is not just an option, but an integral part of effective mobile delivery.

Engaging students in the real world rather than a dingy computer lab really brings back the possibility for blended delivery in a digital age.

Join us as we explore effective use of mobile technology in delivery and get ready for the very near future.

You are encouraged to have a mobile device with internet connection to hand during the session and have the following apps pre-loaded if possible:

1) A QR code reader (such as Qrafter for iOS or Google Goggles for Android)
2) Augment (iOS and Android) and also print the required Marker. All available from http://augmentedev.com/
3) Layer (AR browser for iOS and Android)
4) Wikitude (AR browser for iOS and Android)

While downloading the above will help you engage with the session on the day, I will also be demonstrating via webcam.
