Teachers' Guide to Augmented reality

Teachers' Guide to Augmented reality
Augmented Reality is a concept that has been around for sometime now but with the latest innovations in the digital world, augmented reality has been foregrounded posing serious questions as to its relevancy in education and learning. What is Augmented Reality ? Augmented Reality is exactly what the name implies: an augmented version of realty created by mixing technology with the known world. It might be a distorted, augmented, or less augmented version of the actual world but in its basic form, augmented reality is a simulation or rather a way of superimposing digital contents into the real context. Augmented reality has its origins as early as the 1950s and has progressed with virtual reality since then, but its most significant advance have been since the mid 1990s when researcher Tom Caudell coined the term "augmented reality," What is the difference between virtual reality and augmented reality? Augmented Learning ? How does augmented reality works ? Related:  Classroom IdeasMOBILE LEARNING Y REALIDAD AUMENTADA

Augmented Reality Brings New Dimensions to Learning Editor's Note: Drew Minock, who co-wrote this piece, is an elementary teacher, co-founder of the popular education blog Two Guys and Some IPads, and is one of the voices on "The Two Guys Show" podcast. 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. Educators know that learning deepens, not just through reading and listening, but also through creating and interacting. Classroom Applications Another app, Aurasma, allows users to engage in and create Augmented Reality experiences of their own. Not Just Another Fad

Définir des objectifs pédagogiques efficaces et cohérents grâce à la taxonomie de Bloom et la méthode SMART Une fois les besoins et attentes de formation analysés, définir vos objectifs pédagogiques constitue une étape fondamentale dans le développement de votre projet de formation. C’est le message que j’avais tenté de faire passer dans l’article de lundi : cette étape vous permet non seulement de baliser votre parcours, et aussi d’en faciliter l’évaluation. Toutefois il n’est pas toujours évident de définir facilement ses objectifs pédagogiques : quelles formulations utiliser ? faut-il nécessairement intégrer des verbes d’action ? comment vérifier que les objectifs soient effectivement opérationnels ?… La bonne nouvelle, c’est qu’il existe 2 outils simples et géniaux qui, combinés, peuvent vous aider à réaliser cette étape les doigts dans le nez : il s’agit de la taxonomie de Bloom et de la méthode SMART. Je vous propose de passer ces 2 outils en revue ci-dessous : La taxonomie de Bloom pour définir vos objectifs pédagogiques… [table id=1 /] … et la méthode SMART pour les affiner ! Sources :

La taxonomie de BLOOM La classification des objectifs en catégories est ce que l'on appelle la « Taxonomie des objectifs ». L'intérêt d’une taxonomie est qu'elle permet d'identifier la nature des capacités sollicitées par un objectif de formation et son degré de complexité. Cette information, parmi d’autres, permet d’adapter la méthode de formation. De ses travaux Benjamin Bloom , psychologue en éducation, a fait émerger une classification des niveaux de pensée importants dans le processus d'apprentissage. Vis à vis du domaine cognitif, Bloom identifie 6 types d'activités, du plus simple au plus complexe, comprenant chacune un ou plusieurs sous-domaines : Bloom fait l'hypothèse que les habiletés peuvent être mesurées sur un continuum allant de simple à complexe. La taxonomie des objectifs éducationnels de Bloom est composée des six niveaux suivants : la connaissance, la compréhension, l'application, l'analyse, la synthèse et l’évaluation. 1-Retenir des connaissances Il peut s’agir de : Il peut s’agir de

Augmented Reality: The Future of EdTech By: Drew Minock Augmented reality is defined as “a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by computer generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics, or GPS data.” (Wikipedia) We have discovered that augmented reality is much more than the definition describes – it is the future of educational technology. It all started on March 21st at the MACUL Conference in Detroit when the great Leslie Fisher showed the $20 bill trick using an app called Aurasma. Augmented reality allows us to put objects in the hands of our students that would have previously been impossible. There are several augmented reality applications available to download onto your mobile device, but few give you power to create your own experience like Aurasma. “She loves the Aurasma application, she loves that she can hear YOUR explanations at any time“– it’s so much better than doing homework with me or her father. character or person.

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: 8 Excellent Augmented Reality Apps for iPad In this post Educational Technology and Mobile Learning is providing you with a list of some awesome augmented reality apps for your iPad but before that let us first see what the concept of augmented reality is all about . Augmented reality is a relatively new digital phenomenon that is brought about by the recent development in the field of technology and particularly mobile technology. In augmented reality the line between the virtual world and the real one is blurred. Engineers use some sophisticated technologies to pull out graphics from television screen and computer display and integrate them into real world environments. Though it is still relatively early to talk about the impact of augmented reality on education and learning in particular, some educators have already started foreseeing its integration into the classroom, and according to Paul Hamilton there are several reasons for this : Augmented Reality links knowledge/content with relevant visual imagery.

Augmented Reality and Applications for Education – Part 2 Guest post by James Roberts. Though many would say that augmented reality is destined to play a role in the future of education, others would point out that it’s already here. Here is a lowdown on what Augmented Reality is and some ways it can be used in the classroom. Augmented Reality (AR) is the combination of reality and virtual reality, and allows you to put 3D content and images into the real world. AR has many applications in various fields from military training to education. Augmented reality provides a richer learning experience for the student, providing a extra element of visual/physical context that makes learning more interactive. Following is a selection of free applications that utilize Augmented Reality that can enhance learning in a number of subject areas: For more insights into developments in instructional uses of Augmented Reality applications, check out last week’s post, “The Evolution of Augmented Reality Applications for Education and Instructional Use”.

Aurasma y... ¡Aumenta el mundo! Hace casi un año publiqué en este mismo blog un post titulado "Realidad Aumentada (RA) para todos los públicos". En él daba algunas claves para iniciarse en el uso de esta tecnología que va a revolucionar muchos ámbitos de la sociedad: educación, publicidad, acceso a la información... Pero hacía falta una aplicación sencilla y que, de alguna forma, universalizase e hiciese más accesible la RA para todos. Creo que esta aplicación puede ser Aurasma. También es cierto que es algo exigente con los dispositivos, y no todos son compatibles con la aplicación (ver lista) , o no todos producen o visualizan todos los contenidos (animaciones, modelos 3D,...); necesitaremos como mínimo 512 Mb de RAM (ver requerimientos y dispositivos). Las grandes ventajas de Aurasma son: Cualquier fotografía, imagen u objeto del mundo real puede actuar como marcador de Realidad Aumentada. Vamos a ver cómo visualizar y crear escenas (auras) de RA con Aurasma tanto desde las apps de iOS y Android. 2. Juan Carlos Guerra
