Augmented Reality For the Classroom

workshop – 240 min | Feb 3 – 14:00

Curious about augmented reality but don’t know where to start? Want to bring it into your classroom or studio? Come play with us in this hands-on workshop. Using an open-source platform, a browser and smartphone, we’ll help you navigate the barriers of technically-opaque and cost-prohibitive technology.

Over the course of four hours, you will make a live augmented reality experience that you can share with your colleagues, students, and other conference participants! Together, we will explore motion, interaction, and the z-axis in a rapid prototyping environment that you can bring back to your studio or classroom. No fancy equipment or expensive platforms needed.
