EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ—East Brunswick Public Library (2 Jean Walling Civic Center)’s popular “Wired Wednesdays” program series returns this May.
Lead by special guest presenter Beth-Ritter Guth, “Wired Wednesdays” covers emerging trends and topics in technology.
Ritter-Guth is the Director of Instructional Design and Director of American Honors at Union County College. Her use of innovative technology and virtual worlds in the teaching of literature has been recognized by the Chronicle of Higher Education, USA Today, America Online and Wired Magazine.
She demonstrates how free online services like Google Maps and Google Earth can be used to create virtual tours, ranging from your vacation plans to historical journeys on May 23.
On June 27, the program will demonstrate how participants can make augmented reality cards using nothing but the Aurasma software and a cellphone. Augmented reality enhances reality by using special software to overlay digital information onto an image. Program attendees must bring their smartphone to this program. Both programs start at 7:00 pm.
“Wired Wednesdays” programs are free and open to the public. For more information and to register for either program, visit www.ebpl.org/calendar or contact the Information services Desk at 732-390-6767.
