Augmented Reality
So how can we harness this?
What’s on this week
Answer check/ method check on wall
Extending interest/ lifespan of printed materials and books
Expanding news stories
Adding extra for bright learners – thought provoking questions
Giving a learner perspective
Sharing good practice
Scavenging for info to provoke kinaesthetic learning
Link to digital evidence via photo
Feedback via video
Virtual info points around the building
Interactive displays
Take IT into a non-PC environment
Triggers on assessments allow staff to add verbal qualification
Linking places to info – history, geography, geology field trips
Window on your 'classroom', this is what we've been doing
.... expanding the learning environment
Motivation, engagement, differentiation...
Available on iTunes and Android
'AURA' the AR event
Overlaying images or video onto either a static image or a POI
Basic AR elements can be created on your device
Super Auras are commercially produced auras
Free developer account - can create your own channel
Skin your own app - high cost/ use Aurasma app and channels
Available for iOS and Android
Was a high end advertising tool now available for own development
DnD studio lots of built in widgets

AR (Augmented Reality) uses real things to trigger happenings.
VR (Virtual Reality) is something which has no relationship to a real world item.
What is it?
Target object: an image in a magazine, picture on a wall, photograph
Reference image: the image stored on the database that the target will be compared to.
Fingerprint: the details that are used in the image to compare target to reference. Like a human finger print the more details and complexity the better the detection. Things with repeating patterns, low detail and low contrast do not work well.
Geo-location: grid reference stored in database that triggers an AR event
POI: Point of Interest triggered by location
Available on iOS, Android, Symbian (Nokia) and Blackberry
Works with POIs on all four systems and Layar Vision on iOS and Android
Free sign up for development but some partner development environments are paid for
To develop your own Layers using SDK you need server with PHP, mySQL, JSON
Good free Layers available Wikipedia, EduRoam Hotspots
New Layar Creator free on-line editor works with Layar Vision
Personal DnD environment for Layar vision now available to use
String: target image with black frame. Technical development environment with associated costs.
AR Player: Free if used 'not for profit'. Uses trigger marker. Can be integrated with Google Sketch Up.
Blippar: new kid on the block. Can capture trigger and move away from it, interactive content and games. Only for commercial development currently, but shows possibilities.
