Augmented Reality and Education - Infographic (Leapfrog Initiatives)


Published on

Augmented reality (AR) technology is the result of using convergence technology to greatly expand our functional reality, i.e. that which is in our expanded environment, that we know about, and that we are able to act on. The technologies making this possible include, smartphones, GPS, phone cameras, always-on and always-available data networks, etc. A crude, but widespread, example of AR technology is Google Maps. Google Maps makes it possible for us to know about places of interest that are in our environment, or an environment relevant to us, far beyond that which our biological senses can reveal. Other examples include the services provided by apps such as Layars and Wikitude that provide detailed data on objects that we experience, Google’s recently released AR game, Ingress, among many other projects. AR is likely to be one of the most transformative technological developments that we will see over the next decade because it radically changes the world that we live in, how we perceive that world, and how we interact with it and other individuals in it. With affordable HUD displays (ex. Google Glass) this technology will take on a whole other dimension.
