Augemented Reality in the Early Childhood Classroom
Attendees will learn a multi-modality approach for creating magical learning experiences in their classrooms. The more engaged children are, the more motivated they are to learn. Using six learning modalities, we'll show you how multiple brain pathways increase knowledge retention in young minds. Backed by Independent Research, this hands-on, collaborative reading and math program is getting children kindergarten ready and giving them the foundations for success in literacy. Using visual 3D technology effects, 26 zoo animals come to life and interact with children as they are learning. Come see how science and social emotional reinforcement are threaded through this supplemental curriculum to help all early learners succeed.

Virtual Reality- Tomorrows Technology being used in today's classrooms
In today's industrial society, the world of virtual reality must exist to both broaden and excite the workforce of tomorrow. Today some world leaders like Mercedes and BMW are using the concept of virtual reality to help their technicians repair vehicles. it also allows for the person working on the vehicle to see before hand what needs to be done before removing components. it also allows for the student to be presented with precise directions on how the repair needs to be done. in a learning environment such as ours, teachers need to be visual and creative learners, each creating lessons that can express what the needs are for their field or expertise. in turn the students must be able to understand in a precise manor what is being taught to them. the concepts of virtual reality can be used in many ways,in many different scenario's
