Augmented Reality in School Environments (ARiSE)

The project aims at integrating an AR teaching platform (ARTP) into the everyday environment of teachers and students, displaying audiovisual and multimedia content in line with the needs identified by education experts and researchers in the relevant areas. Using 3D presentations and userfriendly interaction techniques will lead to a better understanding of scientific and cultural content coupled with high student motivation. The students will have the possibility to interact as a team with the virtual objects in a virtual shared space provided by an AR display system and thereby they will perform lear ning by doing instead of lear ning by reading or listening. The new technology will promote team work, collaboration between classes in the same school or even remote collaboration between schools in different countries in a learner-centered approach. A major part of the project work is dedicated to the development of tools necessary for the easy production of content by non-AR experts, to facilitate deployment in different countries of Europe at a moderate effort.
