An introduction to Augmented and Virtual Reality in education
In this interactive video we provide an introduction to augmented (AR) and virtual reality (VR) in education.
Both AR and VR are technologies that both offer an enhanced or enriched experience. AR is a is a technology that enhances the real-world experience with
digital objects (text, images, videos, sounds), while VR is a technology in which the user
is completely immersed inside the computer-generated world.
AR and VR help users to visualize abstract objects and processes, move around or go inside the objects, and experience environments and processes which could not be accessed physically or would be expensive. That could help learners to understand and associate topics with real life, which could lead to better learning results and higher study motivation.
The video tutorial will take you through the main aspects of the potential value of AR/VR for educational purposes, how could these technologies be used in K-12 education, resources where to find authoring tools to create AR/VR experiences, and where to find learning scenarios.
