Usage of Augmented Reality in Education

The perspective of engaging smartphones and usage of augmented reality for education process is amazing, but meantime only a few educators really move this way. AR may help in various ways to give students and pupils extra digital information about any subject while making complex information is easier to understand.

Explain abstract and difficult concepts

AR technology has an ability to render in 3D model anything that may be hardly visualized in a classroom, at a computer, in minds of students. Inverse abstract and difficult content in visual models help students get a deeper understanding of lesson topic.

That works especially good with visual learners and also helps others get alternative ways of integration theoretical material into the real concept.

Involving and interacting

Including AR into lessons may help educators directly involve students into the studying process by interacting 3D model. Taking part in such kind of things helps motivate students, capture their attention for the whole augmented reality classes and helps them understand subject deeper.

Interaction with AR may be part of lesson like a teaser, support of main topic providing extra info to students or be the main content of a lesson.

Canadian tech company CASE transformed a wall of school gym into huge skee-ball game by adding augmented reality layer to it. Therefore, children should launch rubber balls onto wall to destroy model of floating shapes visualized on it by the projector.

Discover and Learn

Visitors of museums by using their mobiles may access AR and discover historical events by exploring various additional content in connection to objects. AR provides visitors with extra information about what they see, or even allows to virtually equip some stuff to themselves or take tour to the past.

On the other side museums mostly can not show whole collection to visitors due to space limitation, lack of resources or just high value of objects. Using AR capabilities provides great opportunities for museums to present more than it is possible in normal conditions.

Augmented reality give visitors ability to use their mobile devices as pocket-tool through which area around them receive endless additional layers of information.

Objects modeling

Manual elements in education, such as the usage of their hands in practice or solving some quiz, may help learners better understand a lesson. By using apps medical students may easily learn human anatomy. Usage augmented reality in education enable them exploring different parts of body individually and discover its unique features.

AR allows students to interact with 3D model. Whatever, rotating, customizing it by setting transparency, changing colors, styles and even parts.

Interactive books

AR books provide deeper understanding of complex content. It also help make process of learning brighter and engaging.

Sadly but, reading common books didn’t motivate children to study science. If so, using books that includes digital AR content can make a deal. For example, revising pages through devices that support AR features may give access to additional content. As a result, springing to life 3D models with animations, sound and interaction actions attracts children attention.

Skills training

In many cases theoretical knowledge is hardly enough to become a good specialist in the wide range of professions.

In measure to give students skills they need in practice education system should change. So, today concepts of teaching should move to way more active position. Finally, as more practical learning method would be included in learning process as less students would stay as passive observers.

Technical students need practice and hand-on experience to get skills of maintenance and assembly suitable for their profession. Sadly, but often skills can’t be practiced in a classroom.

In addition, using AR features may help them by virtual study and practice with fully digital content, or additional 3D models linked to real parts. AR tutorial animations and graphic content also may give extra knowledge about new methods and innovation concepts.

Meantime, AR technology could create different situations and simulations suitable for practical process where students may acquire some experience.

  • Interactive books

Quiz 2

Which one of these pictures that show the usage of AR in Education?

Thanks and see you at the next lesson!

It is not a secret to any pedagogue that more motivated and engaged learners always understand the subject better and learn faster. Their attention and energy concentrate on studying process as educator keeps them engaged and interested. So augmented reality in education process provide huge benefits to all learners.

These are the example of Augmented Reality Education Apps:

Elements 4D

 

Anatomy 4D

There are a lot of augmented reality applications for educational purpose you can find it in your phone Appstore even in the internet. Despite widespread use of AR in other spheres of life, usage augmented reality in education field is a bit new. To sum up, augmented reality teaching options are truly amazing. They provide new ways for both teaching and learning.

Educators get in hand useful tool that may entrap attention of their students and give them motivation to study in the classroom as well as outside it.

In addition, students get tools to visualize abstract and complex concepts of different subjects and chances to receive practical skills by manipulating and interacting with AR content.

Parents also get the chance to engage their children in studying through the playing and learning method.
