Augmented Reality Simply Explained for Students

The potential of this technology in education is uncontestedly huge and several classes now are using it to teach key literacy and mathematical concepts to students. This series of videos is an example of how students in primary are using augmented reality in their learning. Augmented reality should not be confused with virtual reality, for the boundaries of each concept are clearly demarcated. While virtual reality denotes a reality that exists only in the virtual world (online), augmented reality, on the other hand, keeps the real world but only adds a digital layer to it. or amplifies it.
