Augmented reality technology expands the understanding of the processes taking place in the environment, thanks to which it takes its place in the field of education. AR allows you to place any objects and data in a real environment in which they are initially absent, simulating scenes for training. The visualization of 3D objects makes them more visual for perception and arouses interest in learning, allowing you to interact with virtual 3D objects that are difficult to access in real life. Augmented reality focuses on interactivity in order to increase efficiency and make the educational process exciting and memorable, since interacting with animated 3D objects is much more interesting than just looking at images and diagrams in ordinary textbooks and training manuals.
Augmented reality learning applications help you better understand the subject by visualizing complex processes, interacting and making virtual objects visible from different angles. Also, there will be no need to use large stands and other visual aids. AR applications for learning can play content in various formats (3D objects, 3D animations, photos, videos), provide the ability to comment and study material offline. Education in AR can be obtained anytime, anywhere from your smartphones.
Benefits of using augmented reality in teaching:
- gives a sense of reality;
- makes the learning process interesting and effective;
- increases engagement and attention;
- promotes a better understanding of the subject;
- stimulate creative thinking;
- gives flexibility to the educational process;
- provides an experience that is difficult to get in real life;
- no additional equipment required;
- saves space and time;
- provides a safe learning environment.
In modern education, it is important to use cutting-edge technology to engage students in the learning process. The use of AR in education improves the quality of the learning process, makes it more efficient and able to compete with the entertainment sector. Augmented reality has become a popular learning method in universities, schools and early childhood development. The use of AR technology makes it possible to visually explain the subject, bring interest to the boring learning process and contribute to raising the level of academic performance. Studio “AEstAR” develops educational applications with augmented reality, which demonstrate greater efficiency of the educational process and better mastery of the material.
