In this session, participants will learn how augmented and virtual reality devices can be used in conjunction with inquiry-based learning. The goal of this session is to allow participants to see how this type of technology is not overwhelming or not necessarily for those who are technology-gifted.
By giving students additional learning tools that can literally immerse them into a learning situation, they will find new motivation for learning in which they will be at the centre.
In this session, we will explore various apps and devices that provide learning over a variety of subjects, as well as where to purchase them cheaply.
Participants will need to bring a mobile device such as a smartphone and/or tablet on which they will have the ability to install apps.
