It was a pleasure catching up with Dr. Chris Dede, Harvard’s Timothy Wirth Professor of Learning Technology, in Washington, D.C. I had a chance to video interview him about wireless education philosophy and scaling education tech. He’s doing some great things with teachers, students, and augmented reality, so after you watch my talk with him, do some searching to find out more. He does offer and link for sharing in the video as well. Students can create augmented reality using handhelds today, and it might be something to look at for your own classroom.
