Augmented Reality and Geography: The New Frontier

Jorgensen, M. & Zagami, J. (2012). Augmented Reality and Geography: The New Frontier. Queensland Geographer, 47(2), 4. 

AR and Geography are destined to become more intertwined, especially through the growing proliferation of mobile devices.  The combination of computer, internet and mobile technologies gives teachers so many more opportunities to engage geography students, as well as develop rich understanding and knowledge.  Testing the technology before implementing is vital, as is a willingness to take calculated risks and handing the power of learning over to the students.  humanities-based subjects like Geography and  history are fertile pastures ready to be traversed with this technology; virtually, figuratively and literally.
