Diving a Little Deeper
When I refer to pre-made triggers I am referring to triggers that are already made for you and are ready to be used. I myself love to create augmented content, so my triggers would be considered pre-made and ready for you to use. The augmented reality for education company Aug That has seen the need for teachers to share the augmented content that they are creating. Why create an augmented trigger and content for example dividing fractions if someone else has already have created it. Why not just share it. So they developed a teacher community called Teach Connect. Once you belong to the community you have access to what other teachers are creating and sharing.
No time to create an interactive board on adding integers. No problem use my trigger. Make it into a flashcard, sticker, have kids add it to their notes, and so much more. Want to show you students a birds eye view of the Oklahoma City memorial? Print the trigger as a flashcard, sticker, add it to your bulletin board or even your class newsletter. Studying the novel Kids On Strike and want to enhance the learning use the triggers I've made for each chapter of the book. Print out the pictures and cut them in fourths. Scan each quarter, you will get a different augmented experience. The put all the pieces back together for an additional experience. Kind of like a puzzle.
You will need to contact the support team at Aug That tell them I sent you and you need a Teach Connect account. Once you have your account log in and explore the content. There are triggers for math, language arts, science, and social studies. There is even a 3D model of a Star Wars tank/ship. The community is new and is growing.

Time to Share:
Which trigger did you pick? Why did you pick it? How did you use it with your students? How did the trigger enhance the learning process? There are a few ways you can share your experience with the triggers in the Teach Connect teacher community. You can either blog about it share via social media or join the Augmented Reality for Education Google group and share within the group. When sharing your experience remember to use the hashtag #TechieEdu and #AR4Learning.
