    This presentation explores the implications of Augmented Reality for the future of education and society. The technology is introduced, conceptualised, and problematised. Discussion initially focuses on existing uses of Augmented Reality to exemplify what can be done, but also and importantly highlights what has not been done in the field of Education. Future scenarios are presented as a way of thinking through the implications of this transformative technology and preparing educators for the pedagogical revolution that is poised to take place.
