  • thanks for your informative post. Do you show these slides to your students? I learned about argumented reality for education from here: . And I really like what you do. Do you use augmented reality in your lessons? What do you think about using AR for little children?

Augmented Reality in Education

  1. 1. Karen Hamilton & Jorge Olenewa May 2010
  2. 2. Augmented Reality in Education <ul><li>The 2010 Horizon Report, a joint report by The New Media Consortium and Educause, predicts that the use of simple augmented reality in education will be widespread within two to three years </li></ul>
  3. 3. Augmented Reality as a Continuum Real-----------Mixed Reality-------Virtual Reality  Augmented  Paul Milgram and Fumio Kishino (1994)
  4. 4. Augmented Reality: Real versus Virtual Reality Virtual Reality: Second Life Virtual Reality ( VR ) environment is a computer simulated environment that may simulate the real world or an imaginary world.
  5. 5. What is Augmented Reality? <ul><li>Augmented Reality by Rocket Boom </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
  6. 6. Very Simple Augmented Reality Simple Augmented Reality : First down line on football broadcast
  7. 7. <ul><li>Gestured Based Computing </li></ul><ul><li>Gesture recognition enables humans to interact with mechanical devices using simple natural gestures. </li></ul>Augmented Reality: Terms & Definitions Wii EyePet Xbox Project Natal
  8. 8. <ul><li>Geotagging and Geolocation </li></ul><ul><li>A Geotag is a GPS coordinate that associates content such as videos, textual information, audio or any user- generated content to a specific location. </li></ul><ul><li>AR applications draw on specific tags created by companies but will also depend on content that everyday users add through Geotagging. </li></ul>Augmented Reality: Terms & Definitions
  9. 9. <ul><li>Marker vs Markerless Augmented Reality </li></ul>Augmented Reality: Terms & Definitions Markers: QR Code= Quick Response Code Marker: Semacode Markers trigger text, sound, or visuals
  10. 10. <ul><li>Marker vs Markerless Augmented Reality </li></ul><ul><li>AR Browsers: Layar and Wikitude </li></ul>Augmented Reality: Terms & Definitions Trigger of text, sound, or visuals is from GPS and Compass data
  11. 11. <ul><li>A smart phone's camera, compass and GPS information is needed to operate an AR Browser </li></ul><ul><li>The browser first locates the user with GPS and compass of phone </li></ul><ul><li>Next, it retrieves information from online sources based on those geographical coordinates </li></ul><ul><li>The information and graphics are then overlaid onto the camera view of the smart phone’s screen. </li></ul><ul><li>In effect, the AR Browsers label the real world </li></ul>Augmented Reality: Browsers
  12. 12. <ul><li>Provides rich contextual learning for individuals learning a skill. </li></ul><ul><li>Appeals to constructivist notions of education where students take control of their own learning </li></ul><ul><li>Provides opportunities for more authentic learning and appeals to multiple learning styles. </li></ul><ul><li>Has the power to engage a learner in ways that have never been possible </li></ul><ul><li>Can provide each student with his/her own unique discovery path. </li></ul><ul><li>No real consequences if mistakes are made during skills training </li></ul>Augmented Reality for Education: Why?
