Transcript of Potential of Augmented Reality in Higher Education

The future is in our hands

How can Augmented Reality be most effectively used to promote cognitive development?
How can the networked nature of Augmented Reality be utilised to effectively facilitate and support collaborative learning?
What Augmented Reality design and implementation strategies best support student learning?
How can we best support teacher design thinking to leverage the potentials of Augmented Reality?

A significant research agenda

Perfectly situated scaffolding
: providing knowledge at exact time and place of need –increasing cognitive efficiency (e.g. instruction manuals for electronic equipment

Physical transcension
: overcoming physical limitations of our world to scale, manipulate and mix in safe, inexpensive and time effective ways (from molecular to galactic)

Pedagogical affordances of AR

Thought Experiment – What could AR do?

Affordances of Input Devices

Augmented Reality Systems can be defined as those that allow real and virtual objects to co-exist in the same space and be interacted with in real-time (Azuma, 1997)

Augmented Reality enables the seamless compositing of virtual objects onto a real environment in a contextually relevant manner (Billinghurst et al., 2001)

Why AR will make the WWW seem like a rounding error

Augmented reality (AR), a capability that has been around for decades, is shifting from what was once seen as a gimmick to a tool with tremendous potential. The layering of information over 3D space produces a new experience of the world, sometimes referred to as “blended reality,” and is fueling the broader migration of computing from the desktop to the mobile device, bringing with it new expectations regarding access to information and new opportunities for learning.

A key characteristic of augmented reality is its ability to respond to user input. This interactivity confers significant potential for learning and assessment; with it, students can construct new understanding based on interactions with virtual objects that bring underlying data to life.

Dynamic processes, extensive datasets, and objects too large or too small to be manipulated can be brought into a student’s personal space at a scale and in a form easy to understand and work with.

Organisations competing for users to sign up to their AR channel/s (e.g. advertisers)
Advances in search engine technology that enable more intelligent retrieval of information (such as http://www.wired.com/business/2013/04/kurzweil-google-ai/)
As computer-brainwave interfaces mature our experiences are stored in cloud based neural networks (for elaboration of this concept see http://techcrunch.com/2012/11/25/5-ways-augmented-reality-is-starting-to-get-real/)
