Augmented Reality Sandbox (ARS)
Spatial thinking often challenges students. That is why the TGA partnered with UTK's GIS Outreach and Engagement Lab to demonstrate how an ARS can be a powerful tool to bridge the gap between two-dimensional (2D) representations and real landscapes, as well as enhancing the spatial thinking and modeling abilities of students.
Below are classroom lessons on how to develop spatial thinking using contour lines, topographic maps, and play-dough (for those not able to access the ARS).
