MERGEing Literacy with Augmented and Virtual Reality
Since augmented/virtual reality is a new and rapidly developing technology, it is found to be a new medium for means of communication. Many Apps are being developed where students can actively be submerged in content for both reading and writing. Google is bringing VR to schools through their Expeditions Pioneer Program, Google Spotlight Stories app, and Discovery VR allows for students to be part of the stories. There are many new AR/VR programs and devices being created. I would love to work with those programs and devices to increase my students love of literacy as well as success in it.
