Augmented Reality:  How we transformed a reality show, The Great Human Race, into  unique teaching and learning opportunity​

The National Geographic series, The Great Human Race, represents an innovative approach to making television by merging reality TV with the interpretation of human evolution and experimental archaeology. Dr. Schindler will share his experience creating and co-starring in this production.
