She was invited to a dinner at the General Consulate on 5th Avenue in NYC to learn about a new augmented reality teaching system, 3D Bear, used by Finnish and American educators. Those in attendance heard from 3D Bear CEO, Jussi Kajala who described 3D Bear edtech pedagogy and application uses. Other educational leaders were also in attendance sharing their 3D Bear augmented reality learning experiences, including Dr. Monica Burns of Class Tech Tips, and Susan Sclafani, media specialist and librarian, from Oregon Middle School.
