Augmented Reality: Fun Way of Learning
In this modern age of technology, everyone tries to learn new things to have an edge over the competitors without which it would be quite difficult to survive. Due to this reason, learning has to become a fun based activity instead of mere cramming of information which would turn learning into a boring exercise. Here are some ways in which augmented reality helps in imparting lessons to knowledge seekers around the world:
Presenting the curriculum in an eye popping manner
By adding pictures, graphics and videos packed with edutaining (education and entertainment combined) content and so on, one could deliver lectures in a way that gets the undivided attention of learner. For instance a teacher of biology could teach the workings of the human heart or Flora and Fauna using 3D animated models which would excite the students to learn more.
Better mutual interactions
By imparting lessons in an interactive manner would help in better involvement with learners stepping in by accessing different models of learning concepts in the best way possible through simulation. By involving learners, it would help them to take their learning to the next level.
Reduce the cost of training materials
It is a well-known fact that giving training would sound nothing less than a costly affair as physical models, posters and illustrations and so on would cost a large amount of money which makes the task quite difficult to implement. In addition to this, schools would not be able to afford these items owing to their low budgets and this is exactly where students would not have to be provided with physical materials and an access model would do a lot of help by using any kind of device at any time. Also the physical training materials would turn outdated over the course of time and would lose their relevance owing to the arrival of latest updates. Students could use their course materials on the go irrespective of if it is from their classroom or home.
Helps in better retention of concepts
Augmented models ranging from a large superstructure to a tiny molecule could be accessed by students in the form of simple scans, In addition to this, students could access different websites while viewing an augmented model for further details on a topic like the Types of Soil which would deepen the knowledge base of students. Knowledge acquired in this manner would remain in the memory of students for a long time
Boosts curiosity for learning
The new style of learning (virtually) would stimulate students to learn more by making the lessons more interactive and appealing to the students. Learners would be motivated to sharpen their critical thinking skills and get excited about things that happen around them.
The above points would have given you an idea on why this style of learning has changed the way people grasp concepts and would continue to do so in the years to come.
