Excellent Videos OnThe Use of Augmented Reality Apps by Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Excellent Videos OnThe Use of Augmented Reality Apps by Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

"Below are some good videos I got a few days ago on examples of how some augmented reality apps are being used with kids to help them improve their learning. If the concept of augmented reality if all new to you then here is a brief definition of it: 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."

The Department of Citizenship & Immigration in Australia created an augmented reality app for Harmony day which was AWESOME. I'm all for this near-holographic technology in classrooms! Best thing is - it's technology that gets students out of their chairs and keeps them engaged while they walk around exploring the 360 degree augmented "reality".

NASA also made a cool Mars Rover app.

Augmented Reality will impact on education in the future If not already. Get on board and explore the possibilities.  Very exciting.  Can be tough at first but worth pushing through the pain.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, March 24, 2015 12:11 PM

Ah the things we can do with mobile phones and big net tech. A project using Aurasma could make your school year sing. 

Karen E Smith's curator insight, March 27, 2015 9:26 AM

Stiktu | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Stiktu is a new way to be creative and express yourself. Add your thoughts and remarks right on top of objects in the real world. That goes right into our ESL class: Ask students to label objects around them with names, adjectives... ask them to describe colleagues and this description will appear as you place your smartphone or your tablet in front of him... innovation and imagination = learning!

Some examples of how we can actually get students using this technology and how it can superimpose the Internet onto their physical world. So here are some teaching suggestion which exploit two augmented reality type apps and gives students some reading, listening and speaking practice, as well as a bit of exercise.

"Auracaching": As a big fan of geocaching lessons, I have loved the results of getting students up and moving around as they learn various subject matter. For kinesthetic learners there is nothing better. Auracaching brings elements of geocaching in from the outdoors. Teachers or Students create auras about a particular unit or topic.

 

Each Aura (or station) should prompt an action from the participants. Then place the objects in various places around the room or building. The teacher then gives the students hints about where each aura can be found. Once each aura is found the student completes the activity prompted by the Aura.
