Augmented reality (AR) has recently become a field with limitless possibilities. It holds huge promise for improving educational systems across the globe.
Augmented reality is the integration of digital information with the user’s environment in real time. There are several reasons why an Augmented reality differs from Virtual reality.
Where, VR creates a totally artificial environment, AR, on the other hand, uses the existing environment and overlays new information on top of it. AR provides more freedom and opportunities while extracting out current reality and adding something extra to it.
With the change in technology, educational system also witnesses a grand transmutation. AR can be effectively applied to learning in classrooms.
• Science, Humanities and the Arts are the fields of education where AR has been applied the most. It can also be used in Health, welfare sector, and agriculture.
• Students can scan a page of their homework, the page reveals a video of their teacher helping them solve a problem.
• The children who are physically impaired can be benefitted from the use of AR, which creates flashcards of vocabulary words containing a video overlaying that shows how to sign a word or phrase.
• AR can altogether help to build a better reputation of the school by creating phenomenal Yearbooks, tributing to video profiles and sports highlights.
Augmented reality has the power to transform our educational systems while helping new generation students more effectively learn.
