Join Michelle Luhtala, Library Department Chair at New Canaan High School in Connecticut, for her 90th edWebinar! To mark this milestone, Michelle and her guest Jaime Donally, the author of Learning Transported: Augmented, Virtual and Mixed Reality for All Classrooms (ISTE, 2018), will discuss how to integrate augmented, virtual and mixed reality into any classroom. Immersive technology does not have to be complicated or expensive, and it can be used across grade levels and disciplines.

K-12 librarians, teachers, and administrators will benefit from attending this session. Michelle and Jaime will answer questions throughout the presentation.
