OrangeReviewStar"How many students come home after school sharing that they walked around the solar system during class? How often do our students have the opportunity to create 3D worlds or hold holograms in their hands?" So begins this wild ride through augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and mixed reality (MR). Donally briefly explains the differences among these technologies and describes their potential uses in classroom settings. She provides a list of factors to consider, compares devices, and discusses the benefits and drawbacks of Android and iOS. Her plan for successful implementation includes assembling a collaborative team and selecting classroom tools. Offering a scaffolded approach to experiencing and implementing AR and VR, she moves students from mere consumers of information to producers of content. This is an accessible and fun manual, with teacher-ready lesson plans that align to learning standards and links for further exploration.
VERDICT A stellar resource for those curious about VR, AR, and MR.
