Music, art and computer science are extremely important, but so is recess, especially at the elementary grade level. Do you agree? Would love to hear your feedback....
At some of New York City’s highest-rated public elementary schools, recess is now a time for lunchtime clubs that focus on the extras, like music, arts and computer science.

Isn't it time we prepare our children to utilize technology? Listen to our Youth before you decide: "Technology does make you a better learner." Do you agree?

Very informative article on how technology has changed how students learn and perceive knowledge. It's worth reading to get a better understanding of our students today!
Students are different today because of technology. Every educator knows this, of course, but this change is about much more than agile thumbs, shriveling attention spans, and OMG'd vocabularies.

‎2 - 3 years? Of course, schools that use the Augmented Reality Development Lab are already way ahead of that curve...

Augmented Reality Education Takes Classroms into the 21st Century
Introduction
The Augmented Reality Development Lab (ARDL) provides your students with a completely unique set of tools unlike any other educational software. The ARDL revolutionizes the way students interact with their curriculum and allows them to learn and retain information at an advanced level.
 
The ARDL is a revolutionary concept that makes virtual, 3D objects appear in the real world, attached to real objects. Users look through a Virtual Reality POV Viewing Device or at a monitor to see virtual objects like planets, volcanoes, the human heart or dinosaurs. These can be attached to cards, the pages of a book, interactive white board or even on the floor or wall to provide a 3D animated replica that fills the room. Virtual objects excel at conveying spatial, temporal and contextual concepts – especially where the real objects (or real replicas) are too expensive, dangerous or fragile. They can also be highly interactive, letting users erupt a volcano, build a human heart or pull planets out of the solar system for closer inspection.
 
With AR, the user feels like they are working with real, everyday objects. AR also enhances the ability to collaborate, as users can see both virtual objects and their colleagues at the same time, which aids in visual communication. In addition, placing a virtual object in the context of the real word can make it more meaningful and increase the educational benefit of the experience. The ARDL rolls this into an affordable package that can be used at home or in schools on any PC computer. Both new content created by Digital Tech Frontier and by teachers will be released on a regular basis. Currently, new content can be created free of charge with Google SketchUp and the ARDL Module Creation Tool.
