If you are a Teacher (Educator)...

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.

See how AR technology brings exciting and innovative experiences in classroom teaching and learning.

AR Project in Focus

After five years of research, using hand-held technology (such as iPads and tablet devices) students are engaging with their learning via a mobile app and AR capable book titled “Hettie and Harry’s Forest Adventure” – specifically written and produced by Berwick Lodge Primary School, in partnership with Deakin University and Dreemar Solutions Pty Ltd.

An innovative platform of multi-sensory learning that uses immersive technology and augmented reality (AR) to engage students with their learning at school and assist with school readiness. Students learn about the natural environment, the senses and sustainability. The AR book is written and developed by Henry Grossek, Liz Frances Symonds, Rob Kelly and Manjeet Singh Usma.

Hettie and Harry’s Forest Adventure will have a range of accompanying lesson resources and engaging real-world activities for educators, teachers and parents alike (such as drumming lessons, songs and mindfulness activities). These AR resources are under development and will be available soon.
