Augmented Reality in Kindergarten!

Researchers and engineers are pulling graphics out of television screens or computer displays and integrating them into real-world environments.  This new technology, called augmented reality, enhances what we see, hear, feel and smell.

The kindergarteners have begun using this exciting technology to practice their lively letters.  When they focus the iPad on a card, a three dimensional, animated character appears, which they can touch and hear the letter name and sound.  The students had the idea to take pictures of the characters too!

A pretty cool way to remember their sounds!!
