  8. 8. These relationships are primarily based upon the visual and auditory sensory channels as these also dominate the current AR experiences with visual by far leading the way. AR Interaction Models These 4 modes are based on the physical relationship between the user, the camera, the camera's field of view (fov) and the visual/auditory display.
  9. 9. Mixed Terms: The Reality-Virtuality Continuum To the left of the continuum is the Real Environment, as would be seen by the naked eye. Finally - a completely Virtual Environment with no real-world elements, like a Massively Multiplayer Online Game (MMOG) such as World of Warcrafttm or Second Lifetm, where all objects in the environment are modelled by the computer. Next is Augmented Virtuality, where a virtual environment has elements added to it from the real world, such as a Kinecttm gaming system that inserts live video of yourself into the virtual game world. Then Augmented Reality, which is the real environment with added virtual elements.

  15. 15. Technological Fluency For Papert, the first layer of technological fluency is the use of technology to enhance doing other things. Papert called his second layer of technological fluency the practice of technology. The practice of technology provides a broader experience of and deeper access to knowledge. Papert’s third layer is fluency is technological thinking: the having of technological ideas.

  29. 29. Project Findings The students involved in the project found that learning with Augmented Reality has the potential to provide: • Learning opportunities that are both individual and personal • Learning experiences that aren't offered (or are readily available) in reality • Challenging and authentic design based learning tasks
  30. 30. Learning opportunities that are both individual and personal AR is an individual technology. It allows the learner to be a part of what you are learning about. Learning with AR can make it real – you’re not just sitting there and watching, you’re actually doing something, not taking notes on how to do it. Moreover, in AR learners can experiment more, make mistakes and redo it. There is the potential see alternatives, to consider your options and the chance to explore your own choices, not pre-set choices.
  31. 31. Learning experiences that aren’t offered (or are readily available) in reality AR can add a layer of accessibility and enjoyment. The possibility of doing stuff that you wouldn’t be able to do in a chemistry lab at school. Students are able to be in control. Students suggest they might be more inclined to try new things and that they would constantly be imagining new ideas.
  32. 32. Challenging and authentic design based learning tasks Challenges makes you want to go in depth. Authentic tasks - we are more excited about our own ideas instead of a textbook answer. Such a task was not like a worksheet where everyone has done it and it’s nothing special. Students were able to think differently and have ‘their’ own perspective. Design means you can share it and be proud of it.
  33. 33. Challenging and authentic design based learning tasks The students reported that this made them feel that you’re the clever one. A design task is so much more satisfying. One child commented that the AR project has helped me to think deeply about technology.
