AR Learning Tools to be presented at the iDigbio Summit III
Melody Basham who serves as the Education/Outreach representative of SCAN will be presenting an exhibit and demo at the iDigbio Summit III to take place on November 18-20 in Tallahassee, Florida.
Title: Addressing Broader Impacts with Specimen-based Learning Tools
The exhibit and presentation will review NIBA’s 2010 key objectives which encourage collection-based institutions to explore new ways of integrating biocollections into the classroom utilizing new mobile technologies. Melody will demonstrate InsectARium, a specimen-based learning application using augmented reality technology which our group has been involved in developing since July 2012.
