Augmented Reality (AR) is about bringing learning to life. As well as boosting engagement and getting children excited about what they’re learning, these resources provide innovative ways to support understanding in challenging concepts or areas. Watching 3D animations of the water cycle or digging up and examining archaeological artefacts are powerful pedagogical tools made possible by this technology.
They can create a powerful, shared experience when pupils are learning remotely. By providing each pupil with a trigger image for an AR object related to a topic of teaching such as The Romans, or The Water Cycle, all pupils can engage with the same concepts that will stimulate critical thinking and immersive the learners in discussion.
