Freedom Stories is an AR app produced by the Harriet Tubman Institute for Research on the Global Migrations of African Peoples.  You simply print the flash cards from their website, launch the app, point the camera at the image on each of the cards, and see the stories come alive on the screen.   This can be such an effective way for students to learn as it can be more effective at engaging learners.  Also, for students who struggle with reading, this type of AR app provides one more way for them to receive the content.

*This app was just released and works better on more recent versions of the iPhone and iPad.
