Striving for Deeper Student Engagement with AR


While Augmented Reality (AR) deeply engages students through multimodal learning in abstract concepts, it’s not widely used for instruction - only 20% of educators use it in their classrooms. Hesitant educators sometimes associate AR with gimmicks, and many confuse it with Virtual Reality, which requires special technology. This panel will explore how AR, when aligned to learning objectives and created with real classrooms in mind, can create pathways to enriching experiences for students.
