Augmented Reality is an exciting technology that when used, can offer that ‘wow’ factor. City University London has been looking at how this technology can be embedded in teaching and learning.
Mobile devices (tablets and phones) and technology such as the Microsoft Kinect and the Raspberry Pi are making AR a more achievable option and with technologies such as Google Glasses, AR promises exciting opportunities ahead.
Other examples of AR to enhance teaching and learning can be seen at the University of Exeter and University of Manchester.
