Silk Road Augmented Reality Application for Education

The Augmented Reality experiences we have been able to develop through our School in the Park collaboration span many unique subjects. At the Museum of Art students can virtually explore the ancient Silk Road, which was a vast network of routes connecting China with western Asia, the Mediterranean, and the Indian subcontinent. Using 3G-enabled tablets, students are immersed into a virtual marketplace along the Silk Road where they assume the role of a potter, weaver, sculpture or calligrapher. When students answer the interactive questions correctly they are rewarded with gold coins, which they can use to purchase items at the marketplace.
