3DBear webinars

Teaching SEL with Digital Storytelling and Augmented Reality

 

 
Led by Laurie Guyon

Students with strong social and emotional skills do better in school and are more engaged in their learning. This webinar will showcase how augmented reality can be used in the classroom to support social and emotional learning. We will explore ideas around digital storytelling and review activities that foster empathy, understanding emotions, and emotional intelligence.

During this webinar, we will be showing these techniques using the 3DBear Augmented Reality creation platform. If you would like to try these exercises during the session you can download the app to your iOS or Android tablet or phone here.

Led by Denise C Wright

What are some fun ways for students to learn about our solar system, the moon, asteroids, planets, the sun, stars, and constellations? While we cannot launch students into space (even if we sometimes might like to), we can help them make sense of astronomy through creating their own scenes and stories using Augmented Reality. Using AR, they can experience colonizing Mars, taking a trip to the moon, creating an international space station.

Help your students reach for the stars. And the moon, Mars, and the sun.
