STEAMverse Day 9 - JigSpace
Welcome to the ARVRinEDU Advent Calendar 2022! Our special focus this year is on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math). These mini blogs will spotlight an immersive resource that can be easily implemented into the curriculum.
JigSpace (ENGINEERING, AR)
Explore learning in augmented reality to unpack content through step-by-step instructions. Immerse yourself in content by exploring the inner workings of microwave ovens and manual car transmissions with JigSpace. Imagine presentation slides translated into interactive 3D content placed in your classroom. The 3D presentations (called Jigs) transition “slides” to visualize processes.
One significant feature of JigSpace is the access to invite students to join your 3D presentation. Shared by link, students can join the same presentation (with audio capabilities available) and view the steps that the teacher (host) is sharing.
I created my own JigSpace to share an example with you and recorded audio to demonstrate the possibilities in the 3D presentation. View this example below or test my augmented reality experience using this QR code.
