Episode 29: Talking Google Teacher Academy & Augmented Reality with Dr. Tonia Dousay

December 10, 2014

In this episode, I interview Dr. Tonia Dousay. She is an Assistant Professor of the Instructional Technology Program at the University of Wyoming.  The interview focuses on two topics: 1) Dr. Dousay’s recent experience with the Google Teacher Academy that she participated in as part of the Austin, Texas cohort, and 2) Augmented Reality.  You get two topics for the price of one!

We start out the interview with Dr. Dousay describing what the GTA is. She moves on to share her GTA experience and how the experience has helped her professionally. The second-half of the interview focuses on work Dr. Dousay has done with augmented reality. She discusses the benefits and challenges of using AR in the classroom. The interview ends with Dr. Dousay providing advice for educators and instructional designers about using AR in the classroom.
