Augmented Reality (AR) in Education
Augmented Reality (AR) has been around for some time and also has been labeled as a “gimmicky” technology. With a couple of new applications using AR, it is now being revisited again in the educational world. What exactly is AR? According to Wikipedia Augmented Reality is “a live, direct or indirect, view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data.” Imagine a mobile app that displays real time digital meta data over real world physical objects and is viewed through the camera on your mobile device. That is a form of AR.
How is AR being used in education? How do you get started with using AR in your courses? What mobile applications and computer programs are available that use this technology? All if these questions will be discussed during this session.
