EDC Workshop - Augment Your Teaching Reality

Augment Your Teaching Reality

Date: 19 Nov 2015
Time: 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM
Venue: TU411
Facilitator: David Alan Watson, EDC

Augmented Reality (AR) overlays the digital world over the physical world – thus ‘augmenting’ the real world experience.  AR can “bridge the learning gap between abstract descriptions and the real world phenomena,” (Luckin, Fraser: 2011) offering the potential to motivate both learners and teachers to re-think the way they engage in learning and teaching. 
The 'Lean forward Experience,' where the participant is encouraged to actively engage with content can be simply created by using the camera on a smart device to retrieve AR content via images or by your location, inviting the viewer to interact, rather than be a passive onlooker.  This blended workshop is online (30%) and f2f (70%), and requires participants to bring along an iOS or Android mobile device.
