¨The potential power of AR as a learning tool is its ability to enable students to see the world around them in new ways and engage with realistic issues in a context with which the students are already connected¨, Eric Klopfer said.
If you know us, Chromville, than you also know that we truly believe that Augmented Reality is the best innovation in education of these days. With the whole world now using smart-phones and tables, it is only a matter of time until every educational method is a form of technology and we embrace this opportunity. We know that including Augmented reality in the learning process doesn’t only help to find a child´s inner creative, but also improves a child´s learning experience. The virtual world can be as rich as diverse as your own imagination can be, each child can put its own input in AR. We believe that there are tons of benefits to children using applications with AR as learning tools. These benefits getting more known, but the benefits that AR has should be more outspoken to the outside world 1. Increases a child´s creativity The biggest benefit that AR apps have on children is that it increases a child´s creativity, AR supports creative learning, not only in finding their own creative source but children improve the ability to explore and absorb new knowledge and solve problems in ´creative´ ways. 2. Increases motivation The increasing creativity comes together with the increasing motivation and concentration that children develop when they use the AR apps to learn, by motivated we mean that children are more interested to deal with new technology as well as the learning content that comes with this. Children who use the AR apps improve their memory, the ones who use AR apps to learn remember more about the subject that children who learn by manual.
3. Increases satisfaction What we saw and most of all support is that the satisfaction in the learning process increases when children use AR apps to learn, we saw that students have more fun in solving tasks for school if the task comes from the AR app. This fact also makes students learn faster and easier with AR apps, they have more fun in learning and children do learning activities better when it is taken by the AR app. 4. Self responsible The AR method not only helps to improve the children´s skills, but it also makes them more independent, the children learn how to be more independent and they face more self responsibility in the learning progress during all years. 5. More interactive However, that children get more independent doesn´t mean that they get introvert. Actually because of using AR apps children learn how to collaborate with fellow students and increase interactivity with new ways of interaction of the learning tool.
Coloring books might seem like an antiquated plaything given all the drawing and painting apps available for tablets, but learning to master a colored pencil or crayon and stay within the lines helps develop hand-eye coordination. So instead of trying to convince kids to put down their tablets (or phones) Crayola's instead created a line of enhanced coloring books that come to life with the help of augmented reality after they've been colored.
Much of the press and several of the SXSWedu panels on virtual reality talked excitedly about where the medium and technology will be, rather than where it currently is. A substantial conversation can’t subsist on predictions alone, though.
The human eye perceives its surroundings with incredible clarity, depth, and a wide field of view. To put in perspective with technicality, the human eye can perceive a field of view of up to 180 degrees without even moving the eyeballs.To rea
FOV and FPS these two items are massively important for VR and Mixed Reality headsets.
I see Meta2 have just come out with 90deg FOV (much improved from the original ~45deg) but no where near to StarVR 201deg FOV.
This is a great table to see all the providers and where they stand. Unfortunately it's already quite a bit out of date (May 2015) so would love to find a new table rather than make my own. Any links would be appreciated!

I really can’t describe how amazing this technology is. You have to get one and see for yourself! What is it? Google Cardboard is a virtual reality headset which immerses you in the video or picture so you can see a 360 degree view of an image or video.
With its Color Alive line, Crayola was the first company to merge coloring books and apps so kids could bring their on-page creations to life. But Disney Research is taking that idea one step further by letting kids see a coloring book character move in 3D while they’re still coloring it.
It has been predicted that 2016 will be the year when Virtual Reality goes mainstream in Education, largely due to affordability. The only equipment needed to immerse students in a ThingLink VR learning experience is an Apple or Android mobile device and an affordable headset. Playback is supported without the need for a special app.Use of affordable equipment is a factor that can help level the playing field for many students.
