Ocean, Freshwater & Us: The Giant Floor Map and Augmented Reality Experience
Imagine walking on a giant map, following the local river all the way to the ocean. What connections could you make? What questions would you ask about the places you observe?
Join us for an interactive session where we will explore the connections between ourselves and the water that surrounds and sustains us. We will investigate locally relevant aquatic topics where the giant floor map can serve as an instructional tool such as biodiversity, ecosystems, water systems, ocean-climate action, and more.
Additionally, we will discover how immersive technologies, such as augmented reality, can be used to facilitate an inquiry-based approach and inspire all who experience learning on/with the map to take action, ensuring healthy ocean and freshwater systems for future generations. **This is a BYOD facilitated session. A smart device (Android/ iPad iOS) will enable access to the immersive augmented reality experience.** Download the App at oceanweekcan.ca/learning-hub/map.
