How can we use augmented reality to learn more about the world around us?
By using augmented reality (AR), we can bring real-life examples of what we are learning into the classroom. Students can explore places from around the world without ever leaving the classroom. They can study artifacts that we would never be able to actually touch due to their fragility. AR allows us to learn by using hands-on experiences without the limitations of the classroom walls or our wallets.

Where should you look to find the most up to date information about a current event?
To find the most up to date information about a current event, the best place to do a search is either on an academic database or an internet search on trusted websites. Once you choose your source, it's best to put in keywords about the current event and narrow down the times published to the most recent time the event has occurred.
When doing research in a database, what is one of the best ways to narrow your search to get the closest information to your topic?
There are many ways to narrow your search but one of the best is to use the advanced features. This can include the date an article was published, the subject of an article, or even where in the world the article was created.
