How to Use Augmented Reality for Technology Based Learning

Origin Learning

It works to make the real virtual, and uses virtual to simulate reality. That being said for the humor, let’s explore how augmented reality can be used for technology based learning, such as e-learning and m-learning. For other organizations, where virtual reality is not that big a necessity, augmented reality does the trick. Technology acts funny at times.

Augmented Reality – Making Paper Interactive

AR: Augmenting the Reality of Learning

Social Learning

Augmented reality (AR), as defined by the infallible Wikipedia, is a live, direct or indirect, view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data.  It differs from virtual reality in that it modifies the real world instead of replacing it with a simulated one.
