Tech Tips of the Week

Augmented reality is about enriching our environment, the real world, with digital information presented in a way that makes it much more useful and accessible.
This technology, when applied to education, means incredible educational scenarios can be designed which would otherwise be impossible. For example, using virtual reality, we can hold something as small as an atom or as big as a planet in our hands, on a practical scale unconceivable in reality.
Augmented reality also makes it possible for us to study abstract concepts such as geometric and three-dimensional shapes, which are difficult to understand through a flat image in a text book, allowing us to freely manipulate and observe them from any angle, thus greatly improving our spatial visualisation.
