Using AR to enhance education

September 24, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

One of MIT’s labs has been making AR games since 2003. On their site, they describe several examples of using AR and GPS technology as part of afternoon and summer programs for kids. What I think is exciting about incorporating AR into educational curricula is that students are more engaged in trying to solve an AR game or puzzle than they would be if they were sitting in a classroom listening to a lecture.  Could classrooms be replaced by mobile devices?
