ACTC: MAVR (Mixed Augmented Virtual Realities): The Future or a Fad

58 views

Published on

In this interactive poster presentation, Mixed, Augmented, and Virtual Realities (MAVR) are first defined, and their differences are pointed out based on the reality-virtuality continuum. The significance of MAVR, its merits and challenges, and the contribution it can make to education are then discussed. Following that, the integration of MAVR in language teaching and learning is drawn upon. Some Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) applications, such as Aurasma, Blippar, Google Expeditions, are demonstrated, and a number of resources on the integration of MAVR in English language education are introduced; for example, Paul Driver’s learner-generated AR realia. Finally, MAVR future trends and directions are forecasted.
