    • Breaking down the classroom walls: Augmented Reality and language learning E- symposium 2013 24 January, 2013 - 25 January, 2013 University of Southampton Billy Brick and Tiziana Cervi-Wilson lsx133@coventry.ac.uk and lsx091@coventry.ac.uk Coventry University
    • OverviewDefinitionsResearch ProjectLiteraturePositive and Negative aspectsDiscussion 3 31/01/2013
    • How many of you use Augmented Reality? 4 31/01/2013
    • What is Augmented Reality?Short Explanation by Common Craft 5 31/01/2013
    • People’s reaction to AR for the 1st time… … 6 31/01/2013

    • Research ProjectWorked with Faculty Learning TechnologistDesigned a bespoke treasure hunt aroundCoventryRecorded audio files with instructions inItalian (wav files using Microsoft voicerecorder) 8 31/01/2013
    • Research Project (2)Students required to practise four skillsfollowing written and audio prompts triggeredby their locationAugmented Reality “Treasure Hunt” experience Students move from location to location based on instructions, answering questions Different routes, instructions and questions Mobile device requiring camera, GPS and gyroscope/digital compass supportReponses include text messages, photos,audio and video 9 31/01/2013
    • Mobile phones are becoming context-aware,with GPS positioning, recognition of objectsby infrared or wireless tags, and automaticinterpretation of images. They are offeringopportunities to support new forms oflearning through contextual support for fieldtrips, location-based guides, environmentalstudies (Squire & Klopfer, 2007) and to assisteveryday learning activities (Vavoula &Sharples, 2001). 10 31/01/2013
    • Use in testing 11 31/01/2013
    • LiteratureVery little written on AR in HE contextDigital Literacies - (Conole and Alevizo, 2010)MALL - (Kukulska-Hulme, 2006, 2009, 2011, 2012) Language learning defined by time and placeGodwin-Jones, 2011) Apps, technological developments and language learningTraxler (2007) - Mobile learning, conceptualisation; evaluationStockwell (2010) SMS, VocabularyHurd (2005) Learner Autonomy 12 31/01/2013
    • ScalabilityAudio files can easily be changed to any otherlanguagePossible to design an app to build an app?4G should improve speeds and battery life should alsoimprove 13 31/01/2013
    • Positive AspectsImproves learners’ digital literacy (Conole, &
Alevizo 2010)Takes learning outside the classroom (Brown2010) 14 31/01/2013
    • Negative AspectsTime consumingStill a new technologyHave to design for a variety ofdevicesRelies on students having suitabledevices - BYOD 15 31/01/2013
    • Some Other Activities for Augmented Reality Language LearningRole plays as tour guides (learners access Wikitude for information)AR Geocaching (hidden containers are virtual /augmented reality).Projects and fieldtrips (students explore and collect data (text/videos/audios/images)) 16 31/01/2013
    • ...the boundaries betweentraditional roles (teacher andlearner) and functions (teachingand learning) are blurring.‘Teachers’ need to be learners inorder to make sense of and takeaccount of new technologies intheir practice. Conole and Alevizo(2010) p. 44 17 31/01/2013
