We invite you to participate in our research in the use of Augmented Reality (AR) in classrooms to study student engagement and learning outcomes.
What is Augmented Reality (AR)?
Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology that overlays a layer of digital content in your real world view using the camera on your smartphone, iPad or mobile tablet. A variety of content can be overlaid including videos (normal videos, green-screen background videos or even 360-degree panning views videos), 2D or 3D models (assets), animations, audio or voice-over and even real-time spatial data can be displayed.
An AR experience can be triggered by just about anything in the real world; whether an image, an object or even a QR code. Once a trigger is recognised by the technology, almost any combination of content experiences can be delivered to the user.
