Pokémon Go...Going…Gone: Has the current epidemic of Pokémon Go invaded your classroom? Take advantage of the craze by using a free, easy to use, online platform called ARIS to build your own Poke-style games based on classroom content. Your students will be able to roam your campus looking for presidents instead of Pikachu. Augmented reality and real-time map tracking open the door to a world of possibilities, from having your students fully participate in Paul Revere’s ride to Lexington, to having them interact with their favorite book characters. Break down the walls of your classroom and let your imagination Go!
