Transform teaching and learning with AR and VR in your classroom.

We’re at the dawn of an incredible transformation in education. Augmented reality and virtual reality–technologies that were once the province of science fiction and fantasy–are faster, better, and more affordable than ever. These tools have the potential to not only inspire students but to redefine how we teach and collaborate. But widespread adoption of AR and VR in K-12 classrooms requires taking risks, investing money and time, and training educators.

Reality Bytes makes the case for taking this leap by showing how educators are using these amazing technologies, and it provides a powerful framework to help anyone, in any school, join them. The innovative educators profiled are already designing learning experiences using AR and VR that supercharge student motivation, encourage creativity, and make otherwise impossible educational adventures accessible to all. You can do the same, using easy-to-implement resources that will revolutionize how you approach instruction. Equip your students with the skills they’ll need in the future–today.

Reality Bytes opens the doors to tools for meeting every student no matter where they are. This book outlines the power that AR and VR have in building empathy and growing critical worldviews and perspectives. Christine, Jesse, and Micah cast an exciting vision for the future of education!

A must read for educators! As a chemistry teacher, I’m always looking for ways to push the boundaries of what I can do with my students. I had seen a demo of virtual reality where students were able to mix chemicals together and visually see atoms recombining into new substances, making the abstract and invisible, visible and concrete. I thought this book might provide me with more ways to see how this technology could be used in my classes. Not only did I find a bunch of new ways to use virtual reality with my students,…
