"If This Place Could Talk": Using Augmented Reality to Make the Past Visible
In 2014, Virginia's Montgomery County school division adopted a place-based social studies curriculum titled "My Place in Time and Space" for fifth grade students. The curriculum promotes an awareness of the impact of place on local knowledge and disciplinary understandings in southwest Virginia, while also connecting local history to national history. Within this context, we describe how a team of fifth grade teachers, teacher educators, public historians, and computer scientists designed, developed, and implemented an augmented reality application, CI-Spy, that ultimately enabled students to "see" how the separate but equal doctrine, specifically segregated schooling, impacted their own community.
