With so many options to use augmented reality (AR) with students, how do you narrow them down while making these lessons free and engaging for students?

S3 Technologies has partnered with New Territory, an augmented and virtual reality design company based in Akron, to bring eLearning experiences to life with immersive technology. The platform we’ll be using for this particular webinar is Sketchfab due to its ease-of-use and incredible features built into both its desktop and mobile platforms.

The webinar will take place on April 22, 2020, at 3pm. Be sure to pack your virtual bags! We’ll be taking a tour of the world using augmented reality experiences through the Sketchfab platform.
