I was presenting at MACUL over my spring break and one of the ideas I needed to share with you was the idea of having digital parent volunteers. For those of you who are blogging in your classes, you can have parents sign up to read and comment on other students blog besides their own child. I thought this was a neat idea for those parents who may not be able to come help in the classroom but would like to help in some way. Also, the students who may not have any comments from their parents or peers could still have public feedback.
Here is the Thinglink for the resources from my presentation at the conference on Augmented Reality. Below you will find links to the various AR tools with a brief description of how I used them in my classes this year. All of these tools involve the technology of Augmented Reality aka AR (a digital layer on top of something real).
