A broader, meaningful use will need to
be discovered for AR to pick up steam.
Sparrow: An interesting idea that was
on the New Media Consortium’s 2011
Horizon Report, but not included in the
2012 report. While augmented reality
allows for a new layer of information,
tools such as Google Maps allow for
much of the same information without
having a device between the user and
Gonick: An important nascent and
emerging trend underscoring the “ maker”
and experiential learning opportunities
that should inform engaged and realworld
learning wherever possible.
Carmean: Amazing new technologies
need to find their fit. Currently,
3D printing is still just a story in Wired
magazine or a hot topic for alumni in
university publications. It’s
exciting and could be a
game changer down the
road, allowing for a new
culture of entrepreneurship
and the visual made manifest
across the disciplines.
Or it could remain a prototype
machine in the engineering
colleges. We don’t
know yet, do we?
