Interview with author on OnEducation

AR/VR expert Jaime Donally takes teaching immersive technology to the next level, demonstrating how to use multiple tools to create customized learning experiences for students.

Our classrooms are full of individuals who learn in diverse ways, and educators need creative teaching approaches to enrich learning for struggling students. When applied effectively, immersive technology in teaching can target students’ interest, provide flexibility for a range of skill levels and empower students’ choice in their learning. This book will highlight the possibilities of immersive technology to make a greater impact and reach all student populations.

With this book, readers will gain insights into customizing tools through app hacking and app smashing, and discover how pushing the use of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) tools beyond their intended purpose can maximize their benefits, helping meet the needs of all students.

The book:

  • Provides step-by step instructions for how to mix individual tools to create an ecosystem of immersive technology.
  • Offers examples from leading educators who have implemented the tools and techniques discussed, giving readers easy-to-implement takeaways they can incorporate in their classrooms right away.
  • Features robust case studies from leaders in the field, as well as student examples of immersive technology to support the topics discussed.

Learn how to apply AR and VR techniques to deepen student engagement; encourage creativity; activate learning through hunts, breakouts and labs; and explore ways to encourage global collaboration.

Audience: K-12 classroom educators
