Rationale
As education technologies become more pervasive in our daily lives, teachers and administrators are trying to understand and use Mixed Reality in the classroom. However, many educators are struggling: What are all these new realities— Mixed, Augmented and Virtual? How does Mixed Reality create STEAM student experiences? How do I measure the impact of Mixed Reality in my classroom? How does Mixed Reality fit into my professional development plan?

These are just a few of the questions that highlight a fundamental need to demystify how Mixed Reality can benefit students and their learning experiences.
