Learning in 3D via Star Walk 2

Star Walk 2 is an interactive application that includes an augmented reality (AR) setting in which users can hold up a mobile device to identify which stars the device is viewing in real time. Star Walk includes animated graphics of constellations and planets, a dial time to predict what the sky might look like on a future date, and opportunities to view the space station.

Star Walk in Action: Students working in small groups utilize Star Walk 2 to participate in a constellation and planet scavenger hunt, comparing and contrasting features of celestial objects. Students locate and interpret relevant data within the application to make future predictions.

Digital Learning Platform: Star Walk 2 is a student centered and interactive application that engages students to generate predictions, improving cognitive processing experiences.
