It's very appropriate. On the 147th anniversary of the Battle of
Gettysburg the American Civil War Augmented Reality Project
begins a campaign on Kickstarter
to make the use of augmented reality a "reality" for students studying
the American Civil War.
Take a few minutes and watch the video on Kickstarter
get an understanding of the project. Contribute and you can get some
cool shout outs and gifts if the funding goal is reached. At the very
least spread the word about this cool project.
Just so you know
the American Civil War Augmented Reality Project is the brainchild of
high school history teacher and tech geek Jeff Mummert
. Check out his Hershey Before Hershey
project to get a sense of how
history and technology can be melded to form a new and engaging tool to
view our past.
Unfortunately, to make this project a reality we
need funding. So please help us by spreading the word or contributing.

Reality sites (give us a shout out) :BlogFacebookTwitterYouTube
