In focusing on digital technologies, we were attracted by the potential of Augmented Reality to promote student engagement, in this instance, in reading. By ‘bringing to life’ characters in the book our team wrote, we were hopeful. The book has a strong emphasis on the protection of our natural environment. AR has enabled us to develop colourful, ‘real life’ characters, with which the children can readily identify.
