The only way to build the future on curiosity and imagination is through an education that is rooted in the same principles. Teaching and learning has to be much more than a simple process of knowledge transfer. Education has to point students in the right direction and show them how to use all their knowledge coupled with their imagination to accomplish truly extraordinary things.
If teaching methods are built mainly on textbooks and standardized tests, it will be really difficult to teach students to be curious and use their imagination. Reading hundreds of pages and filling out standardized tests won’t jog anyone’s fantasy and creativity. Instead teachers should try to incorporate new and innovative technologies in their instruction, that demand learners to be inventive and creative while learning and responding to assignments.
One such tool that can help students and teachers to get creative is Augmented Reality, or shortly, AR.
More motivated students
I still remember how thrilled I was every time one of my teachers promised to go into new topics for the upcoming classes. It was just like a teaser marketing campaign, it kept me and my colleagues wondering what could it be, and we couldn’t wait to find out. The majority of people like surprises because there is that pleasant sense of anticipation when we are really curious about something new and we are eager to find out what it is.
AR technology can transform each class into a surprising learning environment that will keep students interested and motivated to participate and find out how their reality will be transformed during the lesson. Every class can be a new journey where students have to discover this new AR world and all the learning content hidden within.
More interactive classes
AR can help students become more engaged during classes by offering new ways of content presentation and enhancing collaboration. An interactive content presentation with context-aware information on the learners’ devices can help them to connect with the lesson on a deeper level. It makes possible to give students information at the point of need.
Imagine an AR-enhanced gallery where students just have to look at an artwork and through their AR device — like Google Glass or Microsoft HoloLens they will see not just the painting or statue but all the information related to it about its history and the artist who created it.
Another way to make the class content more interactive is through AR apps, books, and other learning materials. With the help of a simple smartphone, figures and sketches in a book can become 3D images that can be rotated and flipped to give as much information as possible.
This higher involvement improves student satisfaction and it can facilitate deep learning because it increases the probability that the information will be anchored in the learner’s long-term memory, so they will be able to retrieve it for a longer period of time.
More engaged and motivated learners will always learn faster because their attention and energy is concentrated on the learning material throughout the learning process. AR technology can help keep students concentrated by making the learning materials more interesting and engaging.
It can improve the learning curve even more by offering students practical knowledge as well. In many cases theoretical knowledge isn’t enough to become a true connoisseur of a field of study. Students often need a hands-on experience to fully acquire mastery of the class, which is hard to gain, especially where skills can’t be practiced in real life situations.
Where realistic situations are hard or expensive to reproduce in the learning process, AR technology could be used to create simulations and situational role plays where students can begin to build their practical knowledge. And, by improving the efficiency of the learning process and offering the possibility of creating realistic simulations at a lower cost, AR technology can help schools and universities to save money in the long run.
