AR for Education is a resource for educators to access Augmented Reality interactive content developed for the enhancement of education curriculums. AR has the power to engage a learner in ways never before possible. We have a forum for developers to work together on projects and provide content to the many educational facilities. Members of the group can post requests for AR projects needed for any subject. Connect with AR developers and get the latest AR content to be used in your classrooms, library, website and more.
It is our mission to bring this amazing technology into every educational facility and make AR common place in use. Join our group as a developer who is looking for projects or as an educator, publisher, administrator, or any professional who finds value in Augmented Reality content.
Imagine living in the magical world of Harry Potter, where the school hallways are lined with paintings that are alive and interactive. Now imagine creating an atmosphere like that for your students. Augmented Reality (AR) allows educators and students to do just that: unlock or create layers of digital information on top of the physical world that can be viewed through an Android or iOS device. Most people who interact with AR for the first time have a mind-blowing experience but fail to consider classroom applications.
In our elementary school classrooms, we use AR to create active learning experiences hitherto inconceivable, and in the process redefine the learning space! Educators know that learning deepens, not just through reading and listening, but also through creating and interacting. With Augmented Reality products like Elements 4D by Daqri, students manipulate and combine elements -- like mercury -- right from their Android or iOS devices, rather than just reading about them in a textbook. Anatomy 4D is another free app by Daqri that allows users to explore a human body and isolate various body systems Read more..
The future of education is what I consider when I see these and other examples of AR, becoming more and more a standard in education. Children of the future will be taught quite differently from the children of today. AR is just beginning but someday very soon it will be common place and when that day comes, the future generations will work in their jobs with AR, schools will be immersed in AR, and the people of tomorrow will be forever changed. http://bhcourier.com/augmented-reality-ar-future-education/2013/03/16
