We Keep Moving Forward: Opening New Doors to Information Literacy with Augmented Reality

What happens when curiosity leads you to explore new avenues of information literacy instruction? When reaching 100% of first-year composition courses isn't feasible with your current model and alternative practices don't spark inspiration, it's time to start brainstorming. This presentation will walk attendees through the presenter's process of creating an augmented reality learning experience designed to broaden the scope of information literacy, from the frustrating process of trying to find the best augmented reality tool, to a description of the first iteration and students' responses to it, and finally to plans for the future.

Participants will:
  • Be able to describe current uses of online technology to increase the scope of information literacy, as well as current uses of augmented reality in academic libraries, to provide context for the discussed project.
  • Be able to describe the process the presenter used to construct an augmented reality learning experience to broaden the scope of information literacy, including the successes and challenges.
  • Be able to recognize potential next steps for the future of augmented reality information literacy instruction.
