Algonquin Middle School students had the incredible opportunity to experience Augmented Reality with a trainer from Google. Augmented Reality is the integration of digital information with the user's environment in real time. Using mobile devices, students can visualize 3D representations of amazing creatures and massive landforms. Algonquin students explored the ecosystem of a coral reef, the human muscular system, the solar system, phases of the moon, the ocean floor, World War 1 and 2, and many more! Experiencing Augmented Reality really made learning come alive!
Beginning next school year, District 62 will introduce a new school day model for Algonquin Middle School students.
