I’ve been exploring new AR developments that have outstanding potential to positively influence any learning environment. The video I created below captivates a sampling of some new AR tools that anyone will be able to integrate in their classrooms (with patience, a few tools, and some background knowledge, of course):
With these new developments, you can expect me to post more information in the near future describing how to do this, or at least instructions on where to go to receive more assistance.
Meanwhile, if you have any questions or need any help, feel free to contact me.
It’s an exciting time to be involved in education!Read More
Spring-like weather has already hit Texas! As we “spring forward,” consider looking back at the best of K12 Mobile Learning, winter 2011.
Below represent the top ten posts from quarter one of 2011, based on the number of views. Feel free to leave your comments at the end this post, on any of the respective posts listed here, or on the K12 Mobile Learning Facebook page.Read More
This next Tuesday (February 8th, 2011), I’ll be presenting in the Technology Applications Teacher Network Event at the TCEA conference. I’ll be demonstrating how augmented reality can enhance math education; specifically, geometry classes.
The Prezi I’ve developed below, “Implementing Augmented Reality in Math Education,” will provide the framework for my presentation. The reasons for including AR in math classrooms are universal, but since this is a regional conference I’ll be briefly addressing standardized assessment data from Texas.
If you plan on attending this conference, feel free to join me in room 14 from 10:30 – 11:15 AM (Breakout Session 3)!Read More
When I got in trouble as a child, I was often told it was because “the little things just added up.”
Books have been written that try to teach us not to sweat the small stuff.
The Police sang about the little things in their song, Every Little Thing She Does is Magic.
The Power of Now teaches us to embrace the little things in life.
If we kept searching, we’d find that most cultures are fascinated with the little things, for better or for worse. Either way, the little things always add up, and they either serve to enhance our lives or detract from our well being.
The “little-things-add-up” principle manifests itself in nearly all aspects of life:
- In math, the little things mean the difference between right and wrong.
- Sports teams that do the little things right often win.
- In our jobs, the little things we do make a big difference.
- The culmination of little things have a huge influence on local, state, and national economies.
I guess my parents knew what they were talking about.
Depending on the nature of the little things, I believe that we expose them with the hope that we will either (a) appreciate them more, or (b) put forth more effort to do the little things right. Fortunately, this is a universal principle that isn’t exclusive to economics, sports, and parenting. There are little things in all facets of life, and once we expose the little things, we can leverage them to our advantage.

The augmented reality manipulatives section of my blog will provide you with many augmented reality resources to use in your classroom as I’ve done in the video below:
On that page, you’ll find augmented reality resources for the following content areas:Read More
