Soldamatic Augmented Training

Soldamatic Augmented Training | Augmented Reality Learning | Scoop.it
Even in our days, with unemployment ratios never seen before, there is a big lack of skilled professionals to attend demands of industry (naval, aeronautics, automotive, mining, oil&gas, petroleum, infrastructure, etc.) worldwide, with special focus in emerging countries. The main reason is that to get the right skills, a lot of real practice time is needed, and this is complicated, dangerous, environmental damaging and specially expensive (consumables, electrodes, metal, gases, etc.) in disciplines like welding. We have designed Seabery Augmented Training and its first application, SOLDAMATIC AUGMENTED TRAINING, to attract more young people to technical careers, and give training institutions the opportunity to train more people, in less time, better qualified, cheaper, safer, environmentally friendly and promoting female participation in a traditionally male industry, proposing not just the most realistic simulation experience ever seen but also at a price that most of the training institution can achieve.

Augmented Reality on the Plant Floor

Augmented Reality on the Plant Floor | Augmented Reality Learning | Scoop.it
In Andersson’s model, augmented reality does more than just merge technology with reality; it pulls together real-time data, schematics, work orders and resources with the mobile functionality of smartphones and tablets. A kind of triumvirate of big data, mobility and industrial production. “We imagined a technician sent out to service some windmills,” Andersson explains. “He holds up the phone and he can instantly see how much power each windmill is generating and which one he is there to service.”

Serious Gaming for Commercial and Industrial Training

Serious Gaming for Commercial and Industrial Training | Augmented Reality Learning | Scoop.it

Developing gamified training applications for mobile platforms further extends their capability and effectiveness not only for students in the classroom but also for professionals already out in the field. As processes and procedures evolve, often at times for safety reasons, the new information is reflected in the respective training regime(s). By using dynamic systems and platforms such as tablet and handheld smart devices, you avoid the typical cost and logistical nightmare associated to updating and distributing new content to these audiences. By utilising augmented reality, virtual reality and 360 degree experiences within your training programs, you provide a cost effective means of getting the most out of your audience and for them to get the most out of you as an instructor. These immersive methods allow students to become familiar and be tested with near real-world environments, equipment, situations, emergencies and procedures, whilst maintaining a safe learning environment.

AR Textbooks, Virtual Chemistry Sets & the Future of Learning

AR Textbooks, Virtual Chemistry Sets & the Future of Learning | Augmented Reality Learning | Scoop.it

The possibilities for education and augmented reality go far beyond just textbooks. In fact, augmented reality could make learning safer for kids. Why place dangerous chemicals in the hands of children when virtual chemistry sets could eliminate any dangers? Kids can swap protective goggles for head-mounted displays (HMDs) and beakers and bunsen burners for virtual test tubes with 3D chemicals - all of which could be done from the comfort of the student's desk, or even at home.

Augmented Reality: A new way of augmented learning

Augmented Reality: A new way of augmented learning | Augmented Reality Learning | Scoop.it
Augmented Reality has great potentials in education, more specifically in eLearning. It expands the definition and scope of augmented learning, which is brought into a next level. Augmented Reality can create a new era for situated learning by integrating itself with mobile learning and other concepts and technologies. With AR, there would be no need to define the learning contexts and environments, as the real-world circumstances we are grounded define them. A comprehensive one-suit-all learning materials would no longer be useful as each individuals can be the teacher and learner for themselves.

eLearning Technology: Augmented Reality for Learning | Augmented Reality Learning | Scoop.it
A colleague just asked me if I knew anyone who was using Augmented Reality for learning. I just tried a search for “augmented reality” as a keyword along with either title contains “training” or “learning” and found some interesting folks. My next suggestion was to use eLearning Learning to search. This gave rise to the additional of a new keyword Augmented Reality on eLearning Learning. Actually, this leads to quite a treasure trove of great posts.

Mommy Testers: Flashcards Come to Life with Cypher Kids Club | Augmented Reality Learning | Scoop.it
Cypher Kids Club flash cards interact with your iPad or iPhone and turn a normal flashcard into a 3D experience. Kayla initially made the same mistake that I had made with the positioning of the iPad but we quickly worked it out and she had so much fun! She played with them so long that we were almost late for school. Since we have a couple of cross country flights coming up I'm seriously considering going back to Target for the wild animal cards.

5 Uses of Augmented Reality in Education

5 Uses of Augmented Reality in Education | Augmented Reality Learning | Scoop.it
Last week I mentioned augmented reality during a presentation and I could tell from the looks on some people's faces that augmented reality was a new thing to them. That's not uncommon. Sometimes when people hear "augmented reality" their minds drift to some vision of a science fiction world. The truth is augmented reality isn't science fiction, it's technology that is readily available now. To learn more about it, watch the short video below (if you're reading this in RSS click here for the video).

The book which uses augmented reality on your phone to decide the ending | Augmented Reality Learning | Scoop.it
You can interact with the augmented material, and in doing so affect the next issue of the newspaper, which is emailed for you to print out. The story takes place over four days. Mr Miller, who has a BSc in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, said his ambition when starting the project this time last year, was to use AR to “explore new forms of storytelling, to expand the traditional printed story and possible futures of the book”. Mr Miller said: “Sherwood Rise is a kind of game, with a modern take on the Robin Hood story - centred around a ‘terrorist group’ who are trying to hack into newspapers to contest the content and replace the official news with their own version.

A research team from the National University of Singapore (NUS) has released the results of a new study that has indicated that the participants in a trail displayed improved information retention after having played an augmented reality game. They were required to discover the missing elements of that map within the task. Throughout the process, the students used the app and the AR technology to learn more about the history in order to be able to come up with the solution.
