Oculus launched the Rift, HTC launched the Vive and gamers are finally getting the chance to see how much potential VR has. But you don’t have to spend $600 on a headset to digitally alter the world around you. DON’T MISS: Police are investigating a death at Apple’s headquarters this morning.

Shirt uses augmented reality to teach... - Future X Medicine. Aurasma: Augmented Reality for Your Classroom. After weeks of comparing reviews and conducting trials in my classroom, I can say unreservedly that Aurasma offers the best augmented reality (AR) experience for classrooms of any iOS or Android app.
The Aurasma app is more versatile and classroom-friendly than any AR app; it enables teachers to bring curriculum to life, turning almost any environment into a classroom or object into a lesson. Read on to find out why no app does augmented reality like Aurasma. Methodology I began my tests by downloading three augmented reality apps — Layar, Anatomy 4D, and Aurasma v. 3.4.0 — on my iPhone 6 and iPad. I also borrowed my husband’s Samsung Galaxy S5 for a few days to test the apps on an Android phone. Scores User-Friendliness (4/5) A helpful tutorial pops up immediately, providing prompts to walk you through what you need to know.
Teaching (4/5) The pedagogical potential of Aurasma is limitless, as it allows students to add dimension to material through video, animations, and so on. Background. Morfo + Aurasma = Augmented Reality Book Trailers. Last week at the ACTEM conference I showed some folks possible uses for the Morfo 3D Faces app and the Aurasma iPad app.
Morfo 3D Faces is an iPad app that you can use to create a talking picture of person’s face. You can take a picture of a person or you can take a picture of a picture of a person (for example, taking a picture of a picture of a person in a book). Once you’ve captured the picture you can customize the face by altering the eyes, mouth, and nose to move as you talk. After customizing the picture you can record yourself talking. Aurasma is a free app for iPads, iPhones, and Android devices. How Virtual Reality Meets Real Life Learning With Mobile Games. Participatory games let students see archival footage of events that happened in the places where they stand.
(Rosenfeld Media/Flickr) The buzz around games and learning has mostly focused on how educators can learn from game structure to create engaging learning experiences. Or else, educators are experimenting with video games meant to help students practice academic skills. Less attention has been paid to a niche of mobile gaming seeking to bridge the gap between the screen and the real world — pervasive gaming.
“Most games are not automatically motivating,” said Benjamin Stokes, postdoctoral scholar at the University of California, Berkeley School of Information and co-founder of Games for Change. Giving students the opportunity to make meaningful choices isn’t at the center of every classroom, especially when it comes to civics. In these situated games, students play a game on mobile devices that also requires them to interact with the real world. Related. Researchers develop augmented reality app, simulate injuries to instruct medical students.
Urs Albrecht, deputy director at the Germany-based Peter L Reichertz Institute for Medical Informatics, has developed an app that simulates injuries and health conditions for medical students.
The app uses QR code-like technology to show a simulated medical issue using augmented reality through the medical student’s mobile device. Albrecht, who also works at the Department of Legal Medicine of Hannover Medical School, was trying to figure out how to create learning environments for medical students without breaking ethical codes. One such ethical code is letting medical students examine crime victims because the victims could suffer from re-traumatization if not treated properly. “Augmented reality was perfect for this project and we started to develop an AR app for the iPhone that presents forensic findings on the intact skin of the students,” Albrecht told MobiHealthNews in an email. SCARLET (Special Collections using Augmented Reality to Enhance Learning and Teaching)
SCARLET Project Working with materials such as the world-renowned St.
John’s fragment at The John Rylands Library, we’ve used AR to surround ancient manuscripts with digital content so that students and researchers can connect with supporting resources that help them to understand and interpret the texts. SCARLET+ Project Screenshot of the AR app. The SCARLET+ Project took the lessons learnt from SCARLET, together with Mimas’s new understanding of the knowledge, skills and barriers to developing AR, to other institutions and different types of collections – mass observation and 20th-century crafts.
