AR, VR, or MR? Name of your Tool: 3D-BEAR, Augmented Reality Cost (if any): 1 month free trial – 9.99 after that. Platform: Iphone, Android, or Tablet Subject Area: It can be used for all subject areas, I will be using it for Social Studies/ELA Describe how it works (include screen shots): 3D – Bear using your surroundings and allows you to add items (as pictured above) to your space. In the 3rd screenshot you will see that in teacher mode you can also create a class and assign work. Some lesson plans are already formatted on the app for certain subjects. One way to use 3D Bear in my classroom would be to recreate battles of different wars. A fun hands on activity would be to use the app and take students outside and let them recreate a battle from the civil war. Another way to use this when reading literature is allow them to recreate a scene from the text and use the augmented reality to bring it to life. Benefits to student learning: This app allows students to use modern technology in an educational way. I think another benefit is for differentiation. Not all students are able to write well thought out essays analyzing a chapter in a book, but using this technology students can use this to put their thoughts into action and create scenes. It also helps students who are not very artistic still use a creative outlet.
