For this week 7 lecture, we learnt new things about Augmented Reality with our tutor Dr. Fariza Khalid. To be honest, I do not know what is Augmented Reality. So, I'm glad that we learnt it in the lecture. So, what is Augmented Reality? Augmented reality is the technology that expands our physical world, adding layers of digital information onto it. Different from Virtual Reality (VR), AR does not create the whole artificial environments to replace real with a virtual one. AR appears in direct view of an existing environment and adds sounds, videos, graphics to it. A view of the physical real-world environment with superimposed computer-generated images, thus changing the perception of reality, is the AR. Augmented reality (AR) is one of the biggest technology trends right now. AR need to accesses the camera and uses it to detect such as which character you are coloring in the games or book apps, and uses software to re-create the character in 3D character on the screen. One of the most popular ways AR has infiltrated everyday life is through mobile games. In 2016, the AR game such as "Pokémon Go" became a famous game worldwide, with over 100 million estimated users.
Then, AR Technology has made its way to classroom, it seems that it can increasing the engaging and interactive elements in students. One of the simplest way to use AR in education is its introduction in the traditional classroom. Supporting textbook materials with AR examples adds another dimension to the learning process, a process that will become an innovative practical illustrations of complicated concepts. Here’s a simple example of how AR could be utilized in the classroom. By scanning the covers of textbooks, students get a short description of what they re learning. Thus, smarter choices can be made about the selection of learning materials that will be most suited to the task at hand. Augmented reality can make the educational experience be more fun for a young and restless group of people who have gotten used to visual stimulation and interactivity. Students now can explore the lessons and the concepts that they need to review and they can go through the AR demonstration at their own. To sum up this new exciting lesson, teachers could start providing their students with AR-enabled lecture in classroom as it can influence students to explore educational content in real, amazing, interesting and fun.
