How to Transform Your Classroom With Augmented Reality

What started out as something that was simply “cool” has become a way to engage learners like never before. In fact, while I was first introduced to Augmented Reality through the Aurasma App, I never imagined that while walking through a trendy neighborhood in Washington D.C. this past summer, I would come across the first public interactive augmented reality mural dedicated to the life of the actor Paul Robeson. Designed by artist Corey L. Stowers, this mural allows viewers to scan and thus trigger images of his artwork with their mobile devices, accessing historical videos and original content that depict the life of the great athlete, performer, and civil rights activist.

It was at this moment that I realized that Augmented Reality was a way to bring a new dimension to learning. The Augmented Future Of eLearning: Augmented Reality In eLearning - eLearning Industry. In this article, you are going to witness the first iteration of a new type of head mounted display that is going to change the way we see the world.

It will fundamentally change the way in which we learn about new subjects, and how we apply that knowledge in our everyday lives. The Microsoft HoloLens is the first product of its kind to change the environment around you. This technology is about to radically change the way in which you learn, and will hopefully revolutionize your perspective in regards to how you examine the world. The Future of Augmented Reality. Perceived as the technology of the future, Augmented Reality is making its way in the market place by continuing to work with top brands and companies.

The Future of Augmented Reality

The numerous applications emerging from the steady development of ground-breaking Augmented Reality is transforming the way people see and learn from their surroundings, and is revolutionizing companies’ business models. Augmented Reality Engages and Enchants Augmented reality (AR) is the integration of digital information with live video and the user's environment in real time. Devices used for Augmented Reality are commonly those of a computer, a camera, a processor and a screen. Augmented Reality recognizes a visual picture or film, blends new information, and displays the virtual result. The Augmented Future Of eLearning: Augmented Reality In eLearning.

Bei manchen Marktbeobachtern stellt sich bei Themen wie Oculus Rift und Google Glass ein Gefühl von Deja Vu ein, gab es doch Mitte der 90er Jahre bereits einen Hype um Virtual Reality - der bald abebbte.

Augmented Reality & Virtual Reality: AR- & VR-Lösungen im Unternehmen

Noch 2013 bezeichnete die COMPUTERWOCHE Virtual Reality als einen der größten Flops der IT-Geschichte. Versucht man eine Technologie wie Virtual Reality oder Augmented Reality einzuordnen, ist deshalb der "Hype Cycle Graph" von Gartner bei der Orientierung hilfreich, denn neue Technologien folgen oft einer fast gesetzmäßigen Abfolge von Überschätzung und Desillusionierung - bis sie eine Stufe der sinnvollen produktiven Nutzung erreicht haben.

Die in den letzten Jahren vielleicht überschätzte Technologie Augmented Reality sieht Gartner aktuell in der Phase des "Trough of Disillusionment" und meint damit den Zeitpunkt, an dem die ersten hohen Erwartungen als nicht erfüllt gelten und sich die wirklich sinnvollen Nutzungsfelder herauskristallisieren. Virtual Reality vs. Augmented Reality - Augment News. One of the biggest confusions in the world of augmented reality is the difference between augmented reality and virtual reality.

Virtual Reality vs. Augmented Reality - Augment News

Both are earning a lot of media attention and are promising tremendous growth. So what is the difference between virtual reality vs. augmented reality? What is Virtual Reality? Virtual reality (VR) is an artificial, computer-generated simulation or recreation of a real life environment or situation. It immerses the user by making them feel like they are experiencing the simulated reality firsthand, primarily by stimulating their vision and hearing. VR is typically achieved by wearing a headset like Facebook’s Oculus equipped with the technology, and is used prominently in two different ways: Virtual reality is possible through a coding language known as VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language) which can be used to create a series of images, and specify what types of interactions are possible for them.

Dieses Bild scheint uns in den letzten Wochen nur zu vertraut geworden zu sein. What is augmented reality (AR)? - Definition from Augmented reality is the integration of digital information with the user's environment in real time.

What is augmented reality (AR)? - Definition from

Unlike virtual reality, which creates a totally artificial environment, augmented reality uses the existing environment and overlays new information on top of it. Boeing researcher Thomas Caudell coined the term augmented reality in 1990, to describe how the head-mounted displays that electricians used when assembling complicated wiring harnesses worked. One of the first commercial applications of AR technology was the yellow "first down" line that began appearing in televised football games sometime in 1998. Today, Google glass and heads-up displays in car windshields are perhaps the most well-known consumer AR products, but the technology is used in many industries including healthcare, public safety, gas and oil, tourism and marketing.

How Augmented Reality (AR) Can Be Great for Math Class: Learning Goals

Overall, it was one of the best professional development experiences I have had the pleasure of taking part in. There were so many great sessions that I hope to blog about soon, but I think I’ll start with the session that gave me inspiration to implement the idea in my own classroom immediately upon returning home.
