WHEEEEEEEEEEEEE I am so psyched, just finished my last augmented reality demo for my classes and I am so excited at how well it went. I used the GE smart grid example and the United States Post Office example and the students loved it. Plus mentioned QR codes such as what entertainment weekly did with its summer movie preview, how real estate and others are using QR codes as well as the Microsoft Tag - the students asked lot of questions, three are doing visual literacy projects now using the concept and I got them to think about ways to expand their job skills and where this technology might be used.
YAY - and this was on a Friday, before the memorial day three day weekend and the students were engaged the whole period - YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
