It is a great tool to engage learners, especially with literacy. My tool of choice for this is Layar, I find the ability to create the AR and change it regularly makes it a great tool for the classroom. I wrote an eBook about how to use it and you can download it by clicking the button above. The book looks at how to use Layar in a step by step guide and gives examples of its use from my own teaching. the last page of the book contains ideas on how you can utilise this technology in your own school. 3 Steps to Creating an Awesome Virtual Museum in Class.

Imagine living in the magical world of Harry Potter, where the school hallways are lined with paintings that are alive and interactive. Now imagine creating an atmosphere like that for your students. Augmented Reality (AR) allows educators and students to do just that: unlock or create layers of digital information on top of the physical world that can be viewed through an Android or iOS device. Most people who interact with AR for the first time have a mind-blowing experience but fail to consider classroom applications. In our elementary school classrooms, we use AR to create active learning experiences hitherto inconceivable, and in the process redefine the learning space! Classroom Applications. 6 Platforms to Create Augmented Reality. When most people first try augmented reality(AR) in education, they start with applications that have the AR content already built into the app.

Augmented reality has many applications, and many areas can benefit from the usage of AR technology. It was initially used for military, industrial, and medical applications, but was soon applied to commercial and entertainment areas as well. The mobile Augmented Reality (AR) world consists largely of two different types of experiences: Geolocation and Vision based augmented reality. Geolocation based augmented reality uses GPS, compass and other sensors in your mobile phone to provide a display of various geolocated point of interest.
