Putting lessons in learners’ hands with augmented reality
Lesson activities using augmented-reality (AR) smartphone apps develop learner engagement, awareness and interaction with other students. AR gives learners control accessing audio-visual content overlaid on still images, and a way to share their own work. This reframes the familiar and generates new activities, promoting movement, aural processing and peer support: more fun, less affect. Come to see, try and make AR activities in open-access app “HP Reveal” —set it up on your device for the talk.
