Roll up, Roll up for the Augmented Reality Special Interest Group ....

We are in the process of putting the finishing touches to the UK wide Augmented Reality in Learning and Teaching Special Interest Group (http://moodle.rsc-eastern.ac.uk/course/view.php?id=216). This is aimed at all educational sectors and is a place to share ideas and experiences to help us all fathom out, what does augmented reality offer educators as a learning technology?

The aims of the SIG are:

  • To develop a self-sustaining SIG and ‘community of practice’ for ‘Augmented Reality in Learning and Teaching’, that adds value, builds capacity, and stimulates partnerships and networks;

  • To facilitate discussion and dissemination of the learning and teaching use, purposes and benefits of augmented reality, and to consider its future uses.

  • To provide a staff development focal point for Augmented Reality practice, from ‘novice‘ to ‘expert’;

  • To integrate ‘the student experience’ and ‘student views’ into these activities and deliberations;

  • To be a resource for evaluation and investigation in the areas of educational augmented reality

  • To coordinate a network of practitioners;

  • To provide information and guidance on practice.

We’ll be launching on Friday 26th April, 11.00 to 12.00 (GMT). For more information registering for the launch, see:

We hope to see you there, the more the better :-)
