I wanted to let everyone know that I’m going to be presenting a new workshop for K-12 teachers coming up soon.  This workshop is going to be fun and hands-on.  We’re going to look at some exciting technologies, including augmented reality (AR) and quick response (QR) codes. Specifically, we’re going to look at how these technologies can be used with mobile devices, like smartphones and tablet computers, and I’m betting at least one or two of the things we’ll try will blow your mind.

The date and details are listed below:

You gotta see this!  Augmented reality & QR codes in action

Location // Room 320 Ball Hall, University of Memphis
Time & Date // 4:00 – 5:30 pm, Thursday (October 17, 2013)

Drop in for this fast-paced and hands-on workshop to see some of the most current and exciting technologies available for teachers and students. We’ll take look at QR codes (those square thingies on signs and posters) and augmented reality, which let’s you merge the real world with the digital one. In addition to learning how to do use these technologies, we’ll discuss how they can be leveraged for teaching and learning, too. Feel free to bring your own iPad or iPhone, or I’ll have an iPad for you to borrow.

The space for this workshop is limited, and the registration will open up on September 15th.  (I will send out some info when this goes “live.”)  If you have any questions, just let me know.  Use the comments below or email me.
