Finding ways to make learning "stick" with technology is always a challenge. Augmented Reality (AR) is one of those "make it stick" technology options available for education and training. With AR you can get students interacting with the world in a whole new way. They can improve their understanding of a lesson through hands-on interaction or create their own content to share with others. Now not everyone can afford expensive AR setups and tools, however, there are a growing number of free AR options available for anyone to use. These options allow you to create an engaging AR experience for your learners.
