One of the reasons I’m so excited about augmented reality and mobile apps is how it brings information to the fingertips of students – no matter where they are. Star Walk 2 is an amazing stargazing app and constellation guide. Students can view the stars at anytime of day from inside their classroom or during after school hours. Taking students on a trip to a planetarium? Scheduling a stargazing night over the summer? These events just might not be feasible at your school. Star Walk 2 helps students view the stars in the sky at anytime of day, anywhere.
Available for iOS (iPhones & iPads), Android and Windows 10, Star Walk 2 is certainly a popular app that has been recently updated. Students can view stars, comets, and constellations by simply pointing their device at the sky. This is an awesome app for introducing students to the solar system or making connections to a piece of literature or informational text.
