Augmented Reality-Sailing the Snail....

Augmented reality (AR) is changing the way we view the world -- or at least the way its users see the world. See How Augmented reality works 
Augmented reality, which is partly real and partly computer enhanced, intensifies what we see, hear, feel and smell. For further information you can watch  Augmented Reality - Explained by Common Craft  You can also download their fact sheet to further support your learning.
I was amazed when I viewed this TED Sixth Sense Technology some time ago...

To enjoy viewing videos on augmented realities go to EchucaELearning for plenty of enlightenment!!
To introduce your students to AR you could try:
ZooBurst is a digital storytelling tool that is designed to let anyone easily create their own customized 3D pop-up books. Using ZooBurst, storytellers of any age can create their own rich worlds in which their stories can come to life.

Sailing the Snail is a short demonstration by Graeme Base of the Augmented Reality from his new book 'The Legend of the Golden Snail'.

Enjoy the book trailer for The Legend of the Golden Snail. The Golden Snail has been banished to the ends of the earth and Wilbur sets out on a mission to free it. Along the way he makes friends who save him from rough seas and mazes of madness, returning him safely home.
It is now available from Puffin Australia where it is book of the week this week!
