Augmented reality (AR) is an emerging technology that connects computer-generated media with the real world, using cameras or global positioning systems. AR has the potential to make ubiquitous learning a reality, allowing learners to gain immediate access to a wide range of location-specific information from a wide range of sources. AR can offer leaners with a unique, personalized learning experience.
Dr. Gallayanee Yaoyuneyong, Mr. Erik Johnson, and I wrote a paper “Augmented Reality: An Overview and Five Directions for AR in Education,” which was recently published in the latest issue of Journal of Educational Technology Development and Exchange (JETDE). The paper offers an overview of AR, examines recent AR developments, explores the impact of AR on society, and evaluates the implications of AR for learning and education.
