iPad & Android Augmented Reality For Teachers J Villis

  1. 1. Augmented Reality and Education – A teachers’ thoughts AR stands for Augmented Reality, it “is a live, direct or indirect, view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Augmented_reality). I find the concept exciting and I am personally looking forward to the potential use within the education department. I use several AR apps and my students are highly responsive. I have designed this presentation to share with you some of the ways AR is being used in the community, how it can be used in the classroom and future possibilities.

  5. 5. Word Lens This is one of the first AR apps which I was introduced to. You can see the world in your language, instantly translate printed words using your built-in video camera, in real time! For iPad it is free but language packs need to be purchased separately from within the app. For Android you can download a free demo but it will then cost you $AUS4.99. Here is the link to a YouTube demonstration. I think it is worth watching, even just for interest purposes! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2OfQdYrHRs INTER-TECH EDUCATION http://intertecheducation.edublogs.org/ http://www.pinterest.com/joannevillis/
  6. 6. Zoo Burst Zoo Burst allows you to create your own pop- out books online or via an app. Zoo Burst gives you the chance to make your own 3D pop- up books. Zoo books is available for iPad for free or online at http://www.zooburst.com/ . I have not used this with one of my classes yet. However, my daughter found it easy and creative to use.

  7. 7. Daqri App The Daqri app is a portal to a vibrant world of 4D augmented reality experiences. According to their website “DAQRI is the world’s leading augmented reality developer, providing custom software and creative solutions to clients across a broad spectrum of industries. We help businesses leverage the latest innovations in computer-human interaction. From an educators point of view, this is something exciting to keep an eye on for the future. Here is a link to a YouTube clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNC9TDJBFvA INTER-TECH EDUCATION http://intertecheducation.edublogs.org/ http://www.pinterest.com/joannevillis/
  8. 8. Spacecraft 3D This is one of my favourite AR apps because it is in alignment with Year 3 an Year 5 Science (Primary Connections) units. The app is free to download for iPad and Android. You will need to download the AR card for free but the one AR card will allow your device to read multiple space crafts. INTER-TECH EDUCATION http://intertecheducation.edublogs.org/ http://www.pinterest.com/joannevillis/
  9. 9. ColAR Mix App Primary students love this AR app. You need to download the colouring sheets, ask students to colour in the sheets an the augment them using your iPad or Android device. Of all the paid AR apps, this is the one that I recommend the most. Approximately $3.00, less than a cup of coffee! INTER-TECH EDUCATION http://intertecheducation.edublogs.org/ http://www.pinterest.com/joannevillis/
  10. 10. AR Alphabet This is another awesome AR app. The app is available for iPad and Android. I like the alphabet app because you can print off the AR cards for free, laminate them and then integrate them within your literacy rotation groups. There are also dinosaurs for free and planets (paid). INTER-TECH EDUCATION http://intertecheducation.edublogs.org/ http://www.pinterest.com/joannevillis/
  11. 11. String String is a free AR app which brings characters to life. Once you have downloaded the app, you will need to print the AR cards from their site in order for the AR to happen. You will see a dragon, Proto (a green three eyed character), Scrawl and a sneaker come to life. Here is a link a YouTube demonstration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCEHIkJanm4 INTER-TECH EDUCATION http://intertecheducation.edublogs.org/ http://www.pinterest.com/joannevillis/
  12. 12. Have you heard about Google glasses? Project Glass is a research and development program by Google to develop an augmented reality head-mounted display (HMD). Project Glass products would display information in smartphonelike format hands-free and could interact with the Internet via natural language voice commands. What do you think? Here is a YouTube video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9c6W4CCU9 M4 INTER-TECH EDUCATION http://intertecheducation.edublogs.org/ http://www.pinterest.com/joannevillis/
