In this edition of L.O.L. - Learning Out Loud, we're exploring new realities for your classroom -  Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, and Mixed Reality - to benefit student learning.
Engaging your students in these new realities is easy, thanks to Keystone Media Collection's new Merge Headset and Merge Cube kits. TIP: Use keyword MERGE and look for kit numbers KM 90031 OR KM 90027.
One key to successful classroom experiences is to reference our "Engaging Realities" webpage, which includes vetted, ready-made resources, easy creation tools, and more! 
As AR, VR, and MR creation tools become more accessible, students can demonstrate learning in a variety of reality formats. For example, the simple ARVRMR welcome video at the top of this page easily becomes the centerpiece of the Virtual World below, or could be "triggered" by a Merge Cube through the CoSpacesEDU app. Students can decide how to showcase and share their learning with whichever reality tool they prefer.
Fortunately, educators don't need to be experts in all these tools, just open to the possibilities these resources offer. Get started by exploring our "Engaging Realities" webpage and contact a Keystone Tech Team member for support.
