I can see AR being a good tool to use for objects that are abstract or very small (ie. a cell or an atom). That way, it gives the students an 3D representation. As well, having information pop-up on different items may enrich students learning. Again, as with many new technologies or ideas, it takes time to find these sources, as well as implement them into your lessons so that they supplement or enrich students’ learning. I think we will see AR much more outside of the educational setting before it reaches its full potential with in it.

AR is definitely in its infancy, but the potential to create new ventures using it it seems endless.  Whether it takes off in education is hard to say at this point.  I’m not sure many administrators or school districts would invest much money into AR technology just yet.
