Augmented Reality - Holy cow!

I think that every teacher and every policy maker and every parent should watch this video. Also watch some of the related videos about augmented reality.

Why? Because, while the world keeps making portable applications that do these amazing things, the folks who make the decisions about education are either blocking us from using them, or pretending that they don't exist, or even denying that they make a difference, and instead, continuing to pour money into a system centered around memorization and high stakes tests.

At what point do we take a look at the world around us and say, "OK. It's now time to admit that these things exist AND that they are game-changers."
