Augmented Reality Sandbox Presentation
This awesome thing actually comes from a presentation I did with my husband Gary who is the Technology director at Broaddus ISD. He also teaches a Principles of Engineering class there and they get to build cool things that I'm jealous of. In case you don't know this class is where we got the idea for our AR sandbox. They have now designed & built a streamline version of an AR Sandbox!
I also got to tell people how awesome our AR Sandbox is and showed the audience a video of how we use it. They especially liked how Mrs. Ingram told about how one of her ELL students finally understood the word "steepness" by using this great teaching tool! And our fabulous Technology Director, Josh Smith did a fantastic job of explaining how our own sandbox was constructed. So shout out to you two!
Here is a link to a website that tells you all about the sandbox. It is very cool that his entire district can now enjoy an AR Sandbox because of this design!
MackinVIA - Not Just For Librarians
Here is their website. Like I said it is very organized and easy to navigate and even has videos to go with each product! If you interested in STEM activities and/or coding you could probably find cool stuff here.
On a unplugged note - The product pictured to the right completely captured my attention.
Annie Is Fixing Our Student Accounts on BrainPOP!
PS - I totally nerded out when I got an email from "firstname.lastname@example.org."
NOT cheap but not totally unreachable.
