Abstract

AR is where embedded animations, video clips, 3D graphics ‘come to life’ when a SMART device is help up to an image, which ‘triggers’ the media. There has been significant interest in this technology, especially with the potential of AR Head Mounted Displays (HMDs), leading to investment by corporations such as Microsoft and HoloLens; however there is a gap in the literature around the evaluation of the pedagogical potential when embedding this technology into Higher Education classroom contexts.

In line with QAA benchmarks (QAA 2013) our University is moving towards developing graduate attributes, and early connections with ‘softer skills’ are embedded through Personal Development Planning (PDP) module. The PDP module, taken by our first year computer gaming and technology students has a history of lack of engagement and a poor submission rate. Initial research showed that STEM students in particular can be reluctant to engage with the ‘employability’ agenda (CB1I/Pearson 2013; Harris 2014; UKSES 2014). Our response was to use an Action Research methodology to explore and address these issues (c.f. Norton, 2009), including our students as part a participative research process.

Working with Aurasma, a free ‘App’ that enables the creation of AR artefacts, the curriculum was redesigned placing the development of an AR artefact at the core of the module. The brief for students was to create an artefact based on some aspect of the library, and to keep a blog of group interactions and reflections. To support a more critical approach, the lecturing team modelled a ‘video research focus groups’ in class, where the authors (Holley, Hobbs and Paraskevopoulos) were filmed facilitating the focus groups, and observed by the rest of the students who participated by offering suggestions for questions and feedback on the work of others.) were filmed facilitiaing the focus groups, and observed by the rest of the students who participated by offering suggestions for questions and feedback on the work of others. Our early findings show positive engagement and improved submission rates, and our interactive workshop will invite ALT_C participants to come and bring their SMART devices and discover the planning, process and results of our project through a series of AR artefacts produced by project participants, both staff and students.

  2. 2. This Workshop – 3 phases • Brief Overview of Augmented PDP Project • Viewing / Creating AR Artefacts • What next – open discussion on future course design. (meanwhile, while we do the talky bit, its OK to download the free Aurasma APP from App Store (iOS) or GooglePlay (Android) ) You can download this powerpoint with the instructions from slideshare: ALT-C Shaping the future of learning together 8-10 Sept 2015
  3. 3. The Augmented PDP Project To engage ARU staff and students in broadest context with innovative technology To offer ARU students extra- curricula opportunities to enhance their CV Part of a University LTP project: http://www.lta.anglia. ac.uk/ To explore the affordances of Augmented Reality for inside/outside the classroom ALT-C Shaping the future of learning together 8-10 Sept 2015
  4. 4. The Year 1 Computing/Gaming PDP Problem: • Personal Development Portfolio sessions needed to deliver basic academic skills • BUT failed to engage students from the first year Computing and Gaming Technology course. – lack of submissions, affected progression • So we needed something to act as a practical focus around which the skills could be utilised ALT-C Shaping the future of learning together 8-10 Sept 2015
  5. 5. Augmented PDP: pedagogic approach • Students Introduced to the Aursama AR app • Working in groups outside the class, students created augmented team logos • Students were encouraged to plan, script and create an aura for a book used in their course . • Supporting materials posted on the VLE with support provided via discussion boards and comments on their group blogs. • Research skills to underpin future project work modelled – students took part in ‘Fishbowl’ sessions where they fed staff questions as groups were filmed talking about their experiences • Following ‘flipped classroom principles’ and drawing upon Vygotsky (see Cook, J. (2010) Mobile phones as mediating tools within augmented contexts for development.International Journal of Mobile and Blended Learning, 2 (3). pp. 1-12. ISSN 1941-8647 ) ALT-C Shaping the future of learning together 8-10 Sept 2015
  6. 6. Results • Student comments and responses from a questionnaire were positive. • More students submitted the ‘PDP check list’ demonstrating skills in: – Group work, report writing, research, referencing, presentation, blogging, time / project management You can download our draft paper from ‘Augmented@ARU’ ALT-C Shaping the future of learning together 8-10 Sept 2015

Aurasma is a free App the enables you to follow existing ‘channel’ and view premade resources We will now set up the App on the devices, and start to work towards creating our posters Sequence: In small groups, download app, then we will explore some existing examples to get ideas We will make an aurasma aura using the built in animation ALT-C Shaping the future of learning together 8-10 Sept 2015
