Augmented reality has been around for decades, but it has recently resurfaced and become a hot topic. Every day you are bombarded with new solutions utilizing this idea. However, many of them just multiply the simplistic and common way of thinking. People used to associate AR with mobiles and glasses. Is this field really so limited? Let’s redefine augmented reality to find new ways of designing innovative and disruptive learning solutions.

During the session, you will learn to redefine and expand the meaning of augmented reality. You will see examples of solutions that are far beyond usage of mobile devices and AR-enabled glasses, such as a “day in the life of” (DILO) approach. You will break the connotation of AR with visual sense, which dramatically reduces creativity in this field, and learn how work and training augmentation can support your professional life.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How augmented reality can support people development
  • How to better classify augmented reality solutions (“on the fly,” “reflective,” “situational”)
  • How to adapt AR solutions into the learning design process
  • About curated materials for self-reading and reflections on AR

Audience:
Novice and intermediate designers, developers, project managers, managers, and directors.

Technology discussed in this session:
