Episode:6 What Is AR In Education

AR in education stands for “Augmented Reality in Education.” It is a technology that combines the real-world environment with computer-generated content, enhancing the learning experience for students. Augmented Reality (AR) overlays digital information such as text, images, videos, and 3D models onto the physical world in real-time.

In the context of education, AR can be used in various ways to support teaching and learning:

  1. Interactive Learning: AR enables interactive learning experiences where students can engage with virtual objects or elements overlaid onto their physical surroundings. This interactivity enhances students’ understanding and retention of complex concepts.
  2. Visualizations: AR can provide visual representations of abstract concepts, making it easier for students to grasp difficult subjects, such as complex scientific models, historical events, or geographic locations.
  3. Simulations and Experiments: AR allows students to participate in simulations and virtual experiments, providing a safe and cost-effective way to practice skills, conduct scientific experiments, or explore hazardous environments.
