Augmented Reality
Event Details
Today, we can’t imagine education without innovative technologies that make the learning and teaching process easier. For example, the internet technologies give students an instant access to any information, allow them to collaborate with other students in different projects or get professional help on one of the essay writing services, for example, at ‘thepaperwriting’ when they struggle to complete their numerous essays and research papers.

Augmented reality is a growing field of technology where reality is modified and enhanced by sights and sounds generated by a computer. AR makes the existing reality more meaningful because it allows to interact with it. Augmented reality has a great potential to be used in the classroom because it changes the way students interact with the real world, enhances student engagement, and makes the learning of their subject content a fun. When incorporated into education, AR motivates students to explore and, in this way, learn. It expands student’s horizons and fosters their creativity and imagination.

Typically, AR can be viewed through mobile apps that turn monotonous lessons into interactive games. If you point a camera of your mobile device at something that the application recognizes, it will produce a video or a 3D animation over the things that are your camera screen. It’s great that a computer-generated object looks like real and makes learning more engaging. This technology opens a whole world of new learning opportunities for students, helping them understand complex concepts and have fun. Besides, augmented reality is more accessible than virtual reality and less expensive.
