My Implementation Plan
My students build, draw and program in class. They do this very often and will present their ideas. This group of students has shown me that taking an idea from your head and putting out there for others to see is difficult and messy. Through the technological power of Augmented Reality, my students will begin prototyping, peer reviewing, and presenting more clearly and effectively. Below are the steps for how this will happen over the a 4 month period.

In order to begin the Innovation Plan I must identify the tools that I will be using to get the models and targets to be identified and placed. I have looked some into the Apple ARKit 2 and I will start with this. Visual Vocal and HP Reveal apps are where I want to start out the search. I do have some experience with Apple iOS app development but nothing to the extent of AR. The Merge Cube is also something that could be used to create ideas.

Once I have gathered the app and a few small examples I will find a specific scenario I want to demonstrate. This will likely be having students redraw already existing items using AutoDesk Inventor. They will draw, assemble and then animate the item. The gears turning inside of a clock for example. We will then take the animation and assign it a target image to test the functionality. All students will be doing separate models and targets so they will be able to test each other’s AR presentations.
the Merge Cube has 6 unique target sides to attach models

Implement Augmented Reality as part of the engineering design process. Instead of 3D printing first, the students will make an AR model to see how it will look and perform. They will solicit feedback from their peers and adjust the design and AR models as needed.

Projects will become larger than we can print. Students will be placed in groups and take on larger dimension design challenges were 3D printing will not be effective and the only efficient way to prototype is Augmented Reality. Students will become fluent in the process and begin implementing AR in their presentations.

Once effectiveness has been reached. Students will present to the campus leadership team before speaking with the CTE Directors and Curriculum Specialists. The students and I would then redesign course curriculum for implementation throughout the year and strand.
Completed by end of 4th Month
A corner of the cafeteria will be set aside for students to demonstrate to their peers what they have created. This will introduce the abillities of AR to all students, not just those in the Engineering & Robotics Strand. Students with other passions will implement this as a presentation medium for their projects. Students in History will make annotations in AR of the event their report covers. Art students join with LOTE classes and create a museum walk-thru that has multi-language videos discussing different elements of art. This will be just the beginning.
