In this workshop, we will investigate how we can leverage mobile technologies to connect learning across space, time, and context. Specifically, we will explore how storytelling, as a cultural, historical, and social practice, intersects with the affordances of mobile technologies. We will focus our design efforts in on how Augmented Reality (AR) technologies can generate connections across personal interest, peer relationships, and academic achievement to engage key civic issues. To complete this work, we will use the Augmented Reality and Interactive Storytelling (ARIS) platform as a design case for how to design digital media experiences at the intersection of AR and storytelling practices. ARIS offers non-programmers a sandbox-like platform on which to build these connected experiences, which makes it accessible across audiences and disciplines. Participants will gain the necessary experience in this development platform to implement it into their fields of interest.
