What some may call an 'unsurprising' 71% of 16 to 24-years-olds own smartphones, so why aren't teachers utilising these in the classroom or campus?

Augmented reality in education: teaching tool or passing trend?

Is the use of these devices going to detract from the learning process or contribute to future workplace skills? Should teachers be using techniques such as augmented reality (AR) to engage students and develop their skills for the modern world? Well, I say 'yes'. I believe we should be embracing these opportunities. For instance I see AR as a real opportunity for colleges and universities, not only as a way to market and promote themselves, but as a way to communicate with learners and improve the student experience.

AR allows people to add digital content to printed material, geographic locations and objects. City University London have used a combination of techniques to develop resources through the CARE (Creating Augmented Reality in Education) project for healthcare students, including a series of 'health walks'. 5 reasons to use Augmented Reality in Education - Augment News. By integrating augmented reality into your lectures, you’ll capture the attention of your audience.

You will have their undivided attention. For instance, a teacher in dentistry integrated Augment into his lessons to show 3D models of teeth and how the human jaw works. Let your audience participate! Students are able to access models on their own devices via Augment’s app. By viewing augmented models, the students can gain a better understanding of the concepts they are studying. Prototypes, physical models, and detailed illustrations and posters are all extremely expensive. With Augment, you do not have to invest in physical materials. With a simple a scan, students can access augmented models representing anything from a part of the human anatomy to a famous monument to a molecule.

Incorporating Augment into your lessons will make your students excited about learning. Augmented Reality: A new way of augmented learning. Augmented learning is defined as an on-demand learning technique where the learning environment adapts to the needs and inputs from learners [1].

Augmented Reality: A new way of augmented learning

Broadly speaking, "environment" here does not have to be constrained into the physical learning environment such as classroom, but could refer to such learning environment as digital learning environment, through which learners can stimulate discovery and gain greater understanding. The technologies conventionally used for augmented learning incorporate touchscreens, voice recognition, and interaction, through which the learning contents can be geared toward learner's needs by displaying plain texts, images, audio and video output. For example, in mobile reality system, the annotation may appear on the learner's individual "heads-up display" or through headphones for audio instruction [2].

This system has been shown to improve life-time learning performance. Virtual Reality And Augmented Reality In Education - eLearning Industry. Did you know that an Egyptian temple can be recreated in a 3D environment and that it is possible to walk through it as a true surround environment without leaving the classroom?

Or view on your screen a complete Roman house, with all its rooms, and move its figure to see all its views; Watching oneself attired as a Roman centurion, while all the drapery accompanies your movements; moving to anywhere in the world and feel its temperature and odors; stroll along the ocean floor surrounded by cephalopods or watching a complete heart beating in the middle of a classroom... These are just some of the possibilities that technologies offer to the world of education. It has already ceased to be science fiction and is entirely feasible if you have the appropriate devices.
