The CCARE Experience took place at the Alaska Society for Technology in Education (ASTE) 2013 Conference

This exciting Augmented Reality (AR) history adventure and scavenger hunt took place in the hallways of the Hotel Captain Cook. This session was independent of time or meeting space and took place around the hotel itself! The journey for the viewer begins with the installation of an AR app on your mobile device allowing you to see another layer of reality when in the presence of a marker near select artifacts and artwork on display inside the hotel.  The AR layer tells the story of Cook and his voyages through a mobile multimedia experience. Scavenger hunt winners may receive a technology teaching tool.

What do you need to view?  The Layar Browser App and a camera-enabled mobile device. What do you need to start creating? An account at Layar Creator.
