The FWSU Story: BFA 7th Graders Design Their Own AR Experiences

Mr. Psaros’ class has been learning how to design augmented reality experiences with the new Macbooks along with their assigned iPads in the Augmented Reality Platform, Metaverse Studios.

Augmented reality (AR) is an interactive experience in an environment where the objects in the real world are augmented by digitally generated items. Using computational skills, the students challenged themselves to design digital items to enhance their real world classrooms.

This activity was an exploration into how might BFA could embrace creative and innovative uses of technology by our students in designing projects and opportunities that leverage Macbooks, iPads, and the augmented reality platform, Metaverse.
