Educators have relied on textbooks for classroom learning for a long time. But the demands of preparing 21st century students for college and their future careers challenges many educators to think beyond textbooks.
Lockport Township High School District 205 tries to stay away from textbooks when possible. “We’re not a fan of buying textbooks because we feel textbooks are static, out-of-date,” says Brett Gould, Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction.
The district instead uses mixed reality as one solution to engage their students. By combining elements of virtual and augmented reality, mixed reality allows students to experience and interact with educational content in a realistic learning environment. “It brings it out of the book and into real life,” says Gould.
