Project-based learning. Can integrate technology.
Ask self: What do you use tech for?
What would you like to use tech for?
Why wouldn’t you use tech?

-Blue Jeans video conferencing software, insanely expensive, very clear
(Edward looking at it for Stratford). Students engaged, interactive. He adapted
exercises to the video way of working. Wireless not clear. Best if plugged in.
– WebX? Michael uses for design meetings
Tango, Glide – live apps, phones, not documented for later use
Steve Muterspaugh – Augmented Reality
– uses Aurasma app (replaces QR codes), free
o e.g. scan cover of the program to trigger video content
o biggest hurdle is that they have to subscribe to your Aurasma
channel (and have the app)
o like clicking on a link on your web page, but available on the phone
o can post the study guide material, or a 30 second talk-thru of
exercise for the teacher
o lighting of the trigger image can be a problem
o e.g. of Adding a special FX, rain image on screen while pointing the
camera on the stage
o can integrate your theater app with Aurasma
o can do click throughs e.g. post card to book tickets
o Can geo tag … site-specific performances … treasure hunt style
– Others are there: Layr
– students creating content through Twitter Improv and blogged diary
