OK, I did it. I went to Walmart and bought 23 Merge Cubes for $1 each. I joined the hundreds of teachers who bought truckloads of these cute cubes with no idea of how to use them. Now that they are sitting on my shelf staring at me, I need to figure out how to implement their magic in my Spanish classes.I have not gotten very far, yet, but this technology is way too cool to let it pass. So, if you have any ideas, please share them in the comments. Of course, there is a Facebook page for Cube Educators. The Merge Cube website is full of resources for all teachers. Also, I found this blog that has some great information on how to get started.
If you print this mat, you can scan and upload your own objects so when you point your phone or tablet to the cube you can see your object in Virtual Reality (VR). Once again, not sure how I can use this in the future, but I am exploring. If you have any ideas, please, share in the comments. Happy Exploring!
