Augmented Reality Apps

Augmented Reality apps will soon add interactivity to classroom learning experience. AR apps will open additional ways and methods of learning for students. AR apps will help students easily understand the complex information in any subject increasing engagement.

AR in simple terms is augmenting what you see in the real world with additional information presented digitally. It provides a new method of innovative and immersive learning through visualisation and interaction which will strongly benefit children with learning difficulties and have a large influence among less academically successful students.

AR uses GPS locations to trigger the augmentation, yet others overlay AR over an image,word or bar code. It allows kids to view 2D and 3D models from all angles in real life. Few Augmented reality apps overlay exciting digital content on top of real things with the help of smartphone camera.

Below is a collection of Augmented Reality apps to use in the classroom that will support teaching and learning for kids.
