The Wild and Amazing World of Augmented Reality

The Wild and Amazing World of Augmented Reality | Augmented Reality in Education | Scoop.it
While AR isn’t difficult or expensive to use (especially when compared to 3D Printing or Maker Spaces), it does require forethought and planning. You’ll need a smartphone or tablet with a back facing camera, an augmented reality app (many free), a trigger image (you create yourself, probably for free), and an Internet connection. Then, scan the trigger image with a mobile device app and see what happens!

Some nice ideas.

Rosemary Tyrrell, Ed.D.'s curator insight, March 20, 10:34 AM
Some interesting applications for K-12, but there are some that can also be adapted for higher ed. 
 
Susan's curator insight, March 28, 3:59 AM
Although AR isn't one of my favorite uses of technology in the classroom, I do think that it can be educational if used on occasion or as a one-off activity. Kids will certainly be amazed at what they see and you can build on that initial engagement to create real authentic tasks.

4 Benefits of Using Augmented Reality in the Classroom

4 Benefits of Using Augmented Reality in the Classroom | Augmented Reality in Education | Scoop.it
The other day I was talking to a former colleague about the power of edtech. Since she is a social studies teacher, I told here about the power of virtual reality and augmented reality. Apparently, she knows a lot about VR, but not much about AR and its benefits. In response, I decided to pen an article that discusses 4 benefits using AR in the classroom. The most obvious benefit of augmented reality in education is that it changes the way that students interact with their world and in turn; the way they learn their subject content.

Five Ways Teachers Can Use—and Create—Augmented Reality Experiences - EdSurge News

Five Ways Teachers Can Use—and Create—Augmented Reality Experiences - EdSurge News | Augmented Reality in Education | Scoop.it
Educators are constantly challenged to find ways to keep kids’ attention in class when, outside of school, their world is full of all kinds of highly compelling and visually stimulating media. Many educators find that gamifying learning keeps students engaged. BreakoutEDU, for example, is an educational game platform that includes a curated set of physical materials—think padlocks, boxes and invisible ink—and activities across a wide range of subjects and grade levels. Students might sort images annotated with letters by state of matter (solid, liquid, or gas), for instance, revealing a secret code word that gets them one step closer to the goal. BreakoutEDU is a physical game platform, requiring a significant amount of planning and manual configuration—setting combinations locks, writing clues on hint cards, hiding clues around the classroom—and then supervising the activity as the teams go about their game play. 

Augmented reality tools, however, reduce the time and effort required to set up gaming activities while allowing teachers to break through the noise and engage students with the type of immersive content they find in their daily lives. For example, after watching a 10-minute tutorial, Yvonne Rodriguez was able to create her own AR Experience by arranging components—which she describes as “digital LEGOs”—on her computer screen. “It’s just so easy,” says Rodriguez. “I am not a tech-savvy teacher at all. So if I can do it, anyone can do it.”
