Matthew Ramirez and Suhad Aljundi from Jisc will be visiting the University of Manchester on March 20th to talk through their experience in a European Project which aims at using Augmented Reality in Science education.
In a form of a workshop, there will be a demoing of the tools that teachers and students can use to create an Augmented Reality applications for teaching.
A draft of the agenda for the day is going to be:
-An Introduction about Augmented Reality in Education.
-Background about the AR-Sci Erasmus+ funded project for science education.
-The framework of using AR and integrating it into the curriculum.
-Demoing the AR tool (features and functionalities) (how-to-do-an-AR-app).
-Hands-on and questions/discussion.
The workshop will take place on Monday 20th March in the Samuel Alexander A113 building from 2pm till 4pm. Catering will be offered at 1.30pm. Those who are interested, please confirm your attendance by emailing Andy Howes at firstname.lastname@example.org
Teachers/trainees are asked to bring with them their mobile phones and their ipads and are asked to download the Blippar application before the session just to make demoing the content much easier.
The links to download the app:
Trainees wouldn’t necessarily need a laptop unless you are interested to get your hands-on while we are demoing the tool.
If you are interested to do so, you’d need to create an education account with Blippar which is free before the session too. https://blippar.com/en/products/blippbuilder/
The workshop will be held by Suhad Aljundi, Future technologies developer and an MA DTCE Graduate and Matthew Ramirez,Futures senior innovation developer.
The workshop is open to MA DTCE students and teacher/ trainees from across the UoM.
