  1. “Making it real”: exploring the potential of augmented reality for teaching primary school science Lucinda Kerawalla, Rosemary Luckin, Simon Seljeflot, Adrian Woolard Presented by: Aidos Askhatuly Monday, November 12, 2012 COMP6008: Research Methods in Computing
  2. Outline ● Introduction ● What is Augmented Reality? ● Using AR to teach about the earth, the sun, day and night in a simulated classroom context ● Analysis and findings ● Discussion ● Summary ● Conclusion
  3. Introduction Augmented Reality has potential to engage and motivate learners to explore material from variety of different perspectives, and has been shown to be particularly useful for teaching subject matter that students could not be possibly experience first hand in the real world (Shelton and Hedley 2002)
  4. Augmented Reality is ● Overlapping real environment with digital data such as sound, video, graphics. ● Interactive in real time ● Viewed in 3 dimension
  5. Augmented Reality
  6. Why use AR in formal Education? ● Inexpensive ● Portable ● Easy to set up(Web Camera, ARToolKit, 3d content) ● Exciting ● Visualise concepts which can not be presented in real environment
  7. Incorporating AR into primary school class Year 5 children and their teachers invited to participate in following classes using AR: ● Day and night ● Structure of the solar system Analyses and feedback about AR was made by: ● Video record ● Teacher's interview ● Follow up questions about content
  8. Empirical study
  9. Pictures from the class ● View from the dark side of ● View as if standing on the the earth, with girl in bed sun, with the girl awake
  10. Analysis and findings Positive: ● Children was not confused from technology ● One of the teachers said: “AR can make traditionally inaccessible thing available” Apprehensions of teachers: ● Stationary animation ● No control over the content ● Needed pause and stop ● Difficult to focus on doing several things
  11. Summary Authors wanted to evaluate AR contribution for teaching primary school children. According to analyses and teachers feedback incorporating AR into school curriculum can bring many benefits for educational sphere.
  12. Conclusion AR has huge potential to improve studying process in primary schools. However, the weak point of AR is flexibility that requires further consideration.
