Augmented Reality In Education? Here Are 20 Examples

Augmented Reality In Education? Here Are 20 Examples | e-Resources and Education | Scoop.it

"Augmented reality is exactly what the name implies — a medium through which the known world fuses with current technology to create a uniquely blended interactive experience. While still more or less a nascent entity in the frequently Luddite education industry, more and more teachers, researchers, and developers contribute their ideas and inventions towards the cause of more interactive learning environments. Many of these result in some of the most creative, engaging experiences imaginable, and as adherence grows, so too will students of all ages."

The tenor and tone of the classroom needs to move towards the higher end of Bloom's taxonomy. The content of this YouTube clip is good but the 'how' for a school is much harder than the 'what'.

Looks like a great tool - I hope there is an Android version of it. 

StudentSupport@EdinburghCollege's curator insight, June 18, 2013 10:35 AM

Studying is not the intended function of this application, however, by uploading lecture slides as images, or taking pictures of the board during class, then uploading these images to Pixntell, would allow you to create your very own custom Flashcards. By recording your own audio notes to accompany the images, you could create short movies that could act as bitesize recap tools to support your revision, or prompts for studying, or a visual plan for your coursework.

Exploiting Infographics for ELT

Exploiting Infographics for ELT | e-Resources and Education | Scoop.it

For those of you who haven’t encountered the term ‘infographic’ before, an infographic is a visual representation of, what is often, quite dense statistical information. This is the kind of information which can be very difficult to read as prose / text, but which, when transformed to a visual, can become accessible very quickly.
