Slides for "Augmented Reality’s First Educational Applications" videoconference session,
"What is augmented reality (AR), and how can it be used on the liberal arts campus? In this session, this recently evolving technology for layering digital content over the physical world will be explained, and a variety of examples and platforms, from the iPhone to Android, will be shared. Participants will be guided through a survey of possible liberal arts uses, ranging from campus information to urban studies to new media.
This interactive discussion is the third in this spring’s “Special Topics in Emerging Technologies” series. The series will focus on three technologies identified in The Horizon Report (2010 edition) as likely to be adopted in the next one to three years. Bryan Alexander, NITLE’s director of research, chaired the advisory board for this year’s Horizon Report, which is published annually by the New Media Consortium (NMC) and the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI). This year’s report describes six areas of emerging technology that will have significant impact on higher education in the next five years. "
