HoloLens: the access key to discover Mixed RealityDecember 4, 2017
The innovative technologies we have today can be a valuable support for education of children and adults. Augmented reality, amongst others, thanks to its versatility, could become the best friend of learning and one of the special components of a new way of learning, and why not, learning in a fun way, which is also the main goal of Edutainment.
Edutainment: a way to educate through entertainment
What does "Edutainment" mean?
The term “Edutainment” is an Anglo-Saxon neologism that derives from the union of educational and entertainment terms.
This educational discipline experiences methods of unedited teaching and learning, creating a strong synergy between the learning process and the game. Learning becomes more effective the more enjoyable it is, in fact without passion and fun there could be no learning.
Try doing a little experiment, start explaining the solar system to a child with the only words. Probably, he will find difficult to understand the complexity of the concept and will soon lose interest in it.
Instead, if you add to the words images of the planets, or even an animated video that shows him the planetary motion in the solar system, you will see that the situation will change considerably.
All this can be further enhanced and made more passionate, fascinating and engaging through augmented reality.
How augmented reality can improve learning?
As we have already said, Edutainment tools aim to educate and teach through entertainment. To do this, it takes advantage of the interactivity offered by the digital world and new technologies such as augmented reality.
This innovative technology is capable of transforming traditional book and printed material such as manuals, textbooks, and atlases into an interactive adventure, rich in digital content that enriches learning, making it spectacular and more effective than the traditional one.
With a simple smartphone or tablet
, a child, thanks to augmented reality, will be able to study, in a suggestive manner, how earth’s rotation occurs, a design student will see every detail of the 3D model of an art object and a medical student will be able to explore all the organs of the cardiovascular system and simulate a surgical procedure by interacting with them.
The adoption of this new technology will have an enormous impact on the quality and effectiveness of learning
and many are already gearing up to welcome what seems to be the future of learning.
Thanks to more engaging experiences, interactive and customizable learning materials, it has been demonstrated that the performance of students
and individuals involved in these innovative learning processes can also improve by 30%.
The rapidity and efficiency of development and continuous improvement of skills, thanks to augmented reality, has convinced not only schools, public and private training bodies but also many companies choose to invest in these new methods for training the personnel and updating the skills of their employees.
At this point, you have just to rely on who knows this technology well.
