    Thanks AR group for your hard work on this, it was a fun and instructive experience to go through your ‘Just another UBC blog site’ for this assignment. I will focus on Question 1) & 4). AR definitely has potential.  Specifically, I think once the bugs are worked out, it could provide great potential as […]

    As part of my activities this week to better understand augmented reality (AR) concepts, I used the Layar platform to create a simple AR tour of one of the audio recording rooms in my classroom. While Layar is intended as a tool for integrating AR in print magazines, I found the free iOS app to […]

      Hi Scott,
      Thanks for sharing your demonstration of the layer app. As i have been playing around with the different types of AR apps, I found that they can really be beneficial for hands on learning activities. For instance, when I run a science lab, I usually have multiple stations set up and i’m constantly running around and providing instructions for the students on how to progress through the activities. 99% of the time is spent helping them get through the stations therefore leaving minimal time for further inquiry. I am hoping that I can perhaps set up mini tutorials for each station that students can simply point and play. This technology could also be used in P.E. class in which students can point to a specific workout machine and receive instruction on how to use it and what muscles it emphasizes.
      I agree with the novelty effect that its implementation produces and think it is a great method of hooking students into a lesson.

    A capability that has been around for decades, Augmented Reality, is shifting from what was once seen as a gimmick to a bonafide game-changer. The layering of information over 3D space produces a new experience of the world, sometimes referred to as “blended reality,” and is fueling the broader migration of computing from the desktop […]

      I would rank this as number one on personal opportunity poll because I am very interested in learning how bringing technology such as the Google Glass into the educational setting can help learners engage with learning by interacting with the world outside the classroom.

      This is a field that I find extremely interesting as a software engineer but also like adaptive software something I find daunting. This is due to current time and cost it takes to create this type of learning environment. I feel it’s not something that many educational institutions can afford to develop and use in their current environments. I hope in the future these barriers are reduced and perhaps economies of scale
