The Learning Renaissance

The Shape of Things to Come… Augmented Reality and Learning

The problem with many leading-edge learning technologies is that the cost of adoption is so great only large corporations, the military or research programmes can afford them. However the last two decades have shown us that with the pace of technological change, the costs tend to fall to a point where they penetrate a mass market, such as education.

The importance in this technological breakthrough is ensuring that the learning remains paramount, rather than producing technology for technology’s sake.

This video shows how augmented reality software is being used to help medical students to transition from working in 2D text books to 3D environments that they will encounter on patients!

About educationalist04

I'm convinced we can, as a species, do much better than this if we set our minds to being much more positive and productive towards our fellow humans. The solution is learning - creating independent and autonomous learners who can problem solve, innovate and create a better more equitable and sustainable world. My books, Future Proof Your School and Re-Examining Success together with this blog, explore how better learning outcomes for all can be achieved.
