Education has always been a priority for everyone. It is said to be one of the finest methods that develop skills, values, and knowledge for an individual. With the advancement of technology, the education sector is largely dependent on e-Learning techniques. One such e-Learning technique which is admired by most of the people is Augmented Reality (AR) that has changed the phase of education.
The Augmented Reality is a field of technology where the real-life application is enhanced through computer-generated sights and sounds. By integrating augmented reality into lectures, one can study through 3D videos and in air-projection techniques easily, that are used in mobile applications.
Let’s find out some of the reasons to use augmented reality in Learning:
(i) Interactive lectures: Introducing augmented reality helps students to learn with interest. Students can easily access learning through their devices, especially through mobile, tablets, computer system, etc. Students can gain a better understanding of the concepts, which they are studying. This help students to come up with new ideas which can develop their critical thinking.
(ii) Higher Retention: It is a well-known fact that images and videos have a better impact on our mind than texts. With a simple scan of augmented models, one can easily understand the conceptual knowledge even for difficult topics like Calculus, Differential equation, etc. for a prolonged duration. Subjects like maths and science are cumulative in nature, thus higher retention helps to grasp the conceptual knowledge for longer, which is beneficial in understanding.
(iii) Portability and cost-effective: Most of the prototypes, models, posters are extremely expensive. Most of the time, students do not have enough money to get all the supplementary materials for learning.
With augmented reality, students do not have to invest in expensive materials and misplace products over time. Students can learn from anywhere around the world at any time, either from their home or classroom, even when they are traveling.
(iv) Encourages creativity and curiosity: One can easily develop skills during their childhood. At such a young age, our mind is curious to learn new things and has an everlasting impact on our mind. So it’s really necessary to provide the students with the right resource.
While studying through AR in your childhood, one can easily learn the subjects in an exciting and interesting way. This will help them to be excited by the new ideas learned and its application around the world. Understanding all these concepts will help to boost their creativity and imagination skills at an enormous rate.
Incorporating augmented reality to your student’s learning will enable them to discover their hidden passions and inspire their future endeavors.
