Project Summary:

Students often struggle with the 3D visualization skills necessary to interpret a 3D landscape from a 2D, flat topographic map. The augmented reality sandbox (ARS) bridges the gap between 2D and 3D visualization by projecting a digital topographic map directly onto a landscape created in a sandbox. As that sandbox landscape is altered, the topographic map dynamically adjusts in real time to match the landscape, giving students the opportunity to interactively discover how to read topographic maps.

Project Outcome:

Project Summary:

Support of three full day workshops within a virtual classroom to explore a mixed methods research study, and disseminate information from findings to stakeholders. Artifacts from this project will include the development of template curricula to guide other SUNY departments considering the establishment of a TeachLivE simulation lab to support teacher training.

Project Outcome:

In addition to project outcomes, the website describes the functions and application of the "TeachLivE" simulations in service of teacher preparation.
